Change 4 Dade and Chapman Partnership Team Up to Provide Safe Environment for Homeless Youth in Miami-Dade

The area has seen a 2% rise in the number of unaccompanied homeless youth over the past two years.

 Change 4 Dade is proud to work alongside Chapman Partnership as part of the Leadership Miami® program powered by the South Florida Progress Foundation and Greater Miami Chamber of Commerce to create a safe space for homeless unaccompanied youth in Miami-Dade County. There are 1.7 million unaccompanied homeless youth annually in the United States and over the past two years, there has been a 2% increase in unaccompanied homeless youth in our county alone.

Together, Change 4 Dade and Chapman Partnership will create a dorm space to provide safe and supportive accommodations for these young adults. This project recognizes the critical need to address the challenges faced by vulnerable young individuals who lack stable housing and are at risk of exploitation, substance abuse, and various forms of harm. By transforming the dorm into a welcoming and nurturing environment, Change 4 Dade seeks to empower these youth, offering them a renewed sense of hope, stability, and opportunities for a brighter future.

Your support helps us create a real Change 4 Dade. To explore partnership opportunities, please contact Jessica Crosson at [email protected].

Leadership Miami® is designed to prepare the next generation of South Florida leaders. It offers participants the opportunity to share an intensive learning experience focused on community issues and leadership skills developed with local universities. The program’s dynamic format stimulates animated and critical discussions among participants and guest speakers. To learn more about this program, please contact [email protected].
