  • History:
  • Birthrite Services, Incorporated is a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit service provider for the seniors (age 65 and above) and disabled of Miami Dade county located at 3140 NW 165th Street, Miami Gardens, Florida 33054. The mission of Birthrite Services, Inc. is to fill a need in Miami Dade County for elder care services and advocacy. BSI is a resource center for seniors, displaced homemaker’s of age, and older veterans.
    The Program Director, Sheila Day, MSW, is a certified social worker, HIV counselor, and substance abuse counselor. While working as a nursing assistant back in the 1980’s she began to see the plight that the seniors are faced with in their day to day lives. It was then that she realized her life’s work helping the aged. Having been raised by her senior grandparents, she was able to experience first-hand the multiplicity of needs for the aging American. Mrs. Day went on to do her Master’s in Social Work, with an internship at the Broward County Seniors and Veteran’s Services. She also commits much of her time to the Broward House, Inc. as an HIV and substance abuse counselor serving seniors clients. It is here that she got her training and knowledge about the challenges that older American’s face and the lack of support which exists for most of them.
    The Co-Director, Arthur Day, BS Human Services is a disabled veteran and ordained minister who concentrate in the area of seniors services within a faith-based model. One of Art Day’s earliest memories of helping an older person was Mr. Lee, a wheelchair bound neighbor that he would visit with on a daily basis. “I didn’t realize the magnitude of what I was doing and how important it was as an eight year-old child, now I see that this man’s quality of life was extended due to one small child visiting with him each day,” states Mr. Day. Mr. Lee had been a baseball and football coach for 35 years. As a disabled senior citizen, Mr. Lee’s life was most likely not only improved by Mr. Day’s visits, but also extended by as much as ten years. Looking back today, Art Day knows that the visit itself was the most important gift he could have given his neighbor Mr. Lee. In addition to looking forward to his daily visits, Mr. Lee was probably the recipient of frequent meals cooked by neighborhood women, the latest news, and companionship. Hot collard greens and cornbread kept Mr. Lee from going hungry, the companionship kept him from being lonely, and if Mr. Lee became ill I’m sure he ran to the nearest family or community member to report it. If Mr. Lee fell, little Art would be there to pick him up and call for help. Art Day knows now the importance of these small acts as he is actively working with the seniors today.
    The largest problems that face today’s seniors are mobility, malnutrition, loneliness and depression, injury from falls, and an early death with no resources for proper nutrition, healthcare, and companionship.
    Sheila and Arthur Day have over fifteenth years of experience working with the seniors and have helped many of them from their church or home. Last year, the Day’s decided to make it official in order to help more senior’s more effectively. During their first year of operation as a not-for-profit organization they have helped almost 200 older individuals, while remaining self-sustaining. Now, they would like to acquire physical space and join with some of the larger projects within their community in order to provide a wider base of services and a physical location for multi-purpose assistance for the neighborhood seniors.
