Brownsville Christian Housing Center


Brownsville Christian Housing Center (BCHC) is a 74-unit housing pro-gram located in the renovated former “Christian Hospital” facility in the historic area of Brownsville.

The old Christian Hospital was the first hospital serving the African-American population in the community and is a historically significant building.

Each unit is an efficiency apartment with its own kitchen, bathroom, a twin bed, and individual air conditioning unit.

BCHC serves adult men and women who have come through Miami-Dade County’s Continuum of Care, and who are now ready to live on their own in a permanent housing setting but cannot afford unsubsidized housing.

Camillus House provides residents a range of services in a safe and supportive environment, allowing them to live productive and dignified lives.


Chronic homelessness; disability such as addiction, mental health or physical/health; referral via walk-in, or from an emergency shelter or transitional housing; ability to live independently; drug and alcohol free.

Residents must pay 30% of adjusted gross income as part of their client contribution.

Applicants with no income must show support in the amount of $50 per month and how they plan to eat and take care of basic needs.
