About Camillus House...



Since our founding more than 50 years ago, Camillus House has grown steadily over the years from a small overnight shelter serving Cuban refugees into a full service center offering a “continuum of care” for persons who are poor and homeless.

Every service offered at Camillus is carried out with the deeply held belief that every human being is precious in the eyes of the Lord and deserves love, respect, and a chance to live a dignified life. Camillus does much more than offer a free meal, medical care, a shower, or drug treatment. We offer a second chance to the desperate, the lonely, and the ones society has left behind.

Many of the clients who come to Camillus House have nowhere else to go. They have no friends, no family, and no loved ones to help them. Camillus House becomes their family, giving them the hope and support they need to begin the long, difficult transition to a new life and self-sufficiency.

Camillus House and Camillus Health programs and activities are accessible to and usable by disabled persons, including persons who are deaf, hard of hearing, blind, or who have other sensory impairments. A full range of assistive and communication aid are available free of charge to assist any disable persons.

If you require special accommodation, contact Elizabeth Rivera at elizabethri@camillus.org or call TTY 786.425.9526 or VP 305.704.7340.
