Emergency Shelter

Emergency Shelter

Our doors are open 24 hours a day, seven days a week, receiving children and teenagers in need of immediate shelter. With a total of 48 beds between our two campuses in Miami and Homestead, our emergency shelter program assists youth to gain personal insight, develop new coping skills and adopt more positive behavioral patterns.

Scenarios include:
Safe Haven: Child or teenager who has fled a domestic situation characterized by abuse or neglect
Respite Shelter: Parents and teenagers needing personal space
Essential Services: When the child welfare system has no appropriate community-based homes available to provide domicile for dependent adolescents
