CHYL (Camillus House Young Leaders)

Camillus House has provided humanitarian services to persons who are poor and homeless in Miami-Dade County, Florida since 1960, and has grown steadily over the years from a small soup kitchen into a full service center.

Camillus’ goal is to reach the hardest-to-reach and poorest members of our community, giving them the hope and support they need to begin the long, difficult transition to a new life and self-sufficiency.
