Chapman Partnership collecting school supplies, uniforms for homeless kids

Every year the Chapman Partnership provides all school supplies for every child living at either one of its centers.

“It takes a great load off parents’ shoulders knowing that their kids will have what they need on the first day of school,” said Patricia Vila, marketing director of Chapman Partnership. “Over 1,000 schoolage children come through our centers each year.”

To reach its goal Chapman Partnership relies on the community to assist in collecting items needed for about 200 children who currently reside at its centers — ranging from toddlers to high school age.

“We provide each child with uniforms, backpacks and all other supplies such as pencils, notebooks, calculators, basically anything and everything you can think of,” Vila said.

You can drop off donations at Chapman Partnership’s downtown Miami center, 1550 N. Miami Ave., or the Homestead center, 28205 SW 124 Ct. If you need more information, call 305-329-3003.

Chapman Partnership provides a wide array of services to help the homeless in Miami-Dade County rebuild their lives while offering dignity and respect. It is the private sector partner of the Miami-Dade County Homeless Trust, commissioned to site, build and operate two Homeless Assistance Centers in downtown Miami and Homestead. Chapman Partnership empowers homeless men, women and children to build a positive future by providing the resources and assistance critical to growth and stability.
