The Community Partnership for the Homeless reached a milestone on Thursday and promptly set their sights on another.

The nonprofit agency that operates the Homeless Assistance Center in Overtown announced $2 million in pledges from five major donors at its monthly board meeting. The new contributions pushed the partnership past its $13.6 million fundraising goal to $14 million. Partnership board chairman Alvah Chapman then raised the bar again, setting a new fundraising goal of $16.5 million. The proceeds will help pay for construction and operating costs at the partnership's second Homeless Assistance Center planned for Homestead.

A social worker, prosecutor, teacher and two police officers will be among 10 civil servants honored tonight as the 1997 winners of the Green Family Foundation American Values Award.

The award, sponsored by the foundation and created through the United Way of Dade County, annually recognizes 10 outstanding ``rank-and-file'' public-service employees who also do volunteer work in the community. ``Our honorees exemplify the values of integrity, courage, respect and service to others, the kind of American values that have made this country great,'' said Steven Green, who started the Green Family Foundation with his wife Dorothea to support community and national service initiatives. ``By honoring these extraordinary individuals and their exemplary record of service, we hope to salute all public-service employees who make our communities healthier, safer and more caring places to live.''
