You Can Make a Difference by Contributing to Our Community
Chapman Partnership has transformed the lives of more than 126,000 lives over the past 26 years. The homeless assistance provider manages two Homeless Assistance Centers located in Miami and Homestead with a total capacity of 800 clients per day. The residents work together with case managers to create a comprehensive personalized plan, guiding them throughout their journey with Chapman Partnership. Their wrap-around services include job and housing placement, on-site medical and mental health care, academic and family support, spiritual health and wellness support, and even a dog kennel. Far beyond the basics of emergency shelter, their innovative empowerment model focuses on self-sufficiency and housing stability and they have an incredible 90% success rate.
Now more than ever Chapman Partnership needs the time, talent, and treasure of its community to help rally resources to continue to support its mission. They are asking youth, community, and business leaders to step into their mission by providing needed resources for urgent needs and move-out kits. More than 55 residents move out every month and they are working hard to ensure they have the needed resources for the next chapter in their life.
Items needed in these move-out kits include kitchenware, sheets, towels, rugs, cleaning supplies, and mattresses. Additionally, they are seeking new and gently used luggage from their Journey Home program that provides residents with suitcases and duffels bags to properly pack their clothes so they can begin their journey to a new home with dignity and respect.
In addition to the move-out kits and the luggage program, volunteers can sign up to serve a meal, donate their talent for activities like yoga or exercise activities, academic supplies for the students or help with children's activities in the Family Resource Center. They are also looking for motivational speakers to inspire their residents in special programming in the Spiritual Life and Wellness programming for the adult male and female residents. Chapman Partnership is counting on you – their village to help support families and individuals who are experiencing homelessness in our community. Step into the mission today and found out how you can make a difference.
