Giving back is a core value of our firm. Our team continually pledges their resources, time, and talent to help make our community a better place. For more than two decades, Robert L. Parks has been a volunteer leader on behalf of the Miami River, one of South Florida’s most important waterways. As chairman of the Miami River Commission, he successfully advocated a major dredging and environmental clean-up project, and built consensus for shared residential and commercial uses along the 5-mile navigable portion of the river.
Parks is active in a number of community service organizations focusing on youth, the environment, education and healthcare, including:
Boys and Girls Clubs of Miami
Boys and Girls Clubs of Miami’s programs promote the development of young people by instilling a sense of competence, a sense of usefulness, a sense of belonging and a sense of power or influence.
The Everglades Foundation, Inc. is a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit, charitable organization dedicated to advancing an understanding of the Greater Everglades Ecosystem and its irreplaceable environmental and economic value.
