Help end senior citizens’ homelessness in Miami-Dade County
The Ending Homelessness Fund, supported by The Miami Foundation, aims to build a long-term, permanent solutions to effectively address senior homelessness and prevent people 55+ from slipping through the cracks.
The Challenge: Decreases in Funding Revenue
The Homeless Trust of Miami-Dade County is one of the nation’s largest and most established Continuums of Care serving more than 8,000 individuals every year. Senior homelessness is a growing problem nationwide, but increased demand for resources brought on by the pandemic has stretched our resources thin.
The Opportunity: Invest in Dedicated Facilities
Within this urgent need for housing, there is now an opportunity before us to acquire facilities that will provide a long-term solution for the growing number of senior citizens and other special needs individuals experiencing homelessness. We want to acquire two housing facilities within the next two months.
These facilities will provide permanent housing and seamless care for the men and women 55+ who are currently housed and receiving necessary wrap around support services in several leased locations, as well as those on the streets in need of assistance.
