The Day Center
An Oasis for the Homeless
Our Day Center offers a hot meal, daily shower, clean clothes, mail, and other important services to Miami-Dade County’s homeless community. This “one-stop help center” provides Camillus House staff with a chance to build trust with individuals still living on the street. Day Center clients who are ready can easily transition into Camillus programs such as housing, employment, and other services focused on more profound, longer-term change. In short, the Day Center – the only program of its kind in Miami-Dade County – is “an oasis for those without a roof over their heads.” (Miami Herald)
