Children Services

“Empowering the homeless by creating a nurturing environment where children can succeed.”

Families with children represent a growing segment of the homeless population and over 25% of our residents are children. To serve their needs, we have dedicated family dorms, a Family Resource Center, and a Head Start-funded day care for children up to 5 years of age.

With on-site day care and after school programs, parents have the opportunity to seek and attain employment.

Within 48 hours of admission, all children are enrolled in school through an on-site liaison with Miami-Dade County Public Schools. Many of the children we have assisted have gone on to become Honor Roll students while living here, despite the great challenges they have faced.

Children Services:

  • Head Start Program
  • Bus transportation, uniforms and school supplies
  • Evening family enrichment activities
  • Family Resource Center for school-aged children

Miami HEAT Learn & Play Center
The HEAT Learn & Play Center provides after school programming and evening family enrichment activities which include mentoring, recreational activities and family bonding programs. While in the HEAT Learn & Play Center, children and parents enjoy access to computers, a library of donated books, games, toys, and other recreational and educational resources.
