Palm Healthcare Foundation is proud to announce that we have teamed up with Quantum Foundation to sponsor the new Breakthroughs: The Leadership Palm Beach County Summit.
The free summit on Friday, June 15, hosted by Leadership Palm Beach County, will bring together 300 leaders from private, public and nonprofit sectors to understand three big societal challenges in our community and develop real solutions to solve them through a 100-day rapid response framework.
The summit will focus on three key issues:
#1) finding internships for high school students not heading to college.
#2) creating jobs for ex-offenders getting out of jail or prison.
#3) training employees to understand mental illnesses, support timely intervention, and ultimately save lives through Mental Health First Aid® training.
As you may know, issue #3 deals with one of our core funding areas: Behavioral Health. Along with Quantum Foundation, we are committed to funding innovative initiatives that raise awareness and find solutions to improving mental health in our community.
The summit, which is free to the public, will run from 8am-4pm at Hilton West Palm Beach.
The summit’s organizers are looking for participants who want to deepen their civic commitment and awareness of the summit’s complex and diverse issues as well as those who want to engage in open, thought-provoking, and balanced discussions and be a catalyst for positive change.

We hope to see you at Breakthroughs: The Leadership Palm Beach County Summit!
