Phoebe Morse is a legend in Dade's philanthropy circles. For decades she has raised millions of dollars for a host of charitable causes that range from castaway pets to children with AIDS. She made the Dade Humane Society into one of the best such groups in the nation. The Children's Home Society awarded her the Child Advocate of the Year for raising the money to build a daycare for children with AIDS. She has raised hundreds of thousands of dollars for juvenile delinquents to be reformed through the ICARE program in South Dade. Morse was one of the early career women. She was one of the first women in the country to have her own radio program in the l930s. Since moving to South Florida, she has dedicated herself to volunteer work for more than six decades.
