Homelessness is a huge problem in Miami, and the Chapman Partnership is trying its hardest to help the homeless. The Chapman Partnership runs two Homeless Assistance Shelters in Miami and Homestead. Their homeless shelters have a support program with health care, job training, job placement help, meals, and a day care. The goal of the Chapman Partnership is to help every homeless person build a positive future.
Alvah H. Chapman first founded the Chapman Partnership after he witnessed the many homeless people living under the expressways of Miami. As a result, he helped create the Miami Dade County Community Homeless Plan. The plan implements a 1% food and beverage tax to help fund homeless programs like the Chapman Partnership.
The Chapman Partnership has admitted more than 110,000 people since 1995. Over 250 children live there daily, and many families are housed in the Chapman Partnership. 64% of all admitted residents get housing after the program ends. The success rate of the Chapman Partnership is due to the care and dedication that the volunteers and workers show.
The Chapman Partnership certainly helps change the lives of the homeless.
