Since its founding in 1960 to provide meals and spiritual comfort to homeless Cuban exiles and other poor and hungry Miamians, Camillus House has grown steadily into one of the largest providers of homeless housing and services in the community, offering a comprehensive “system of care” for persons who are poor and homeless.

Camillus House serves more than 1,750 people through its 11 residential facilities and scattered-site apartments across Miami-Dade County—providing case management-focused emergency housing, licensed behavioral health treatment and transitional housing, and permanent housing with supportive services for those ready for independent living. Hundreds more homeless and near-homeless individuals are helped each day through our Day Center services, Specialized Street Outreach programs, Homeless Prevention initiatives, and comprehensive workforce development and life skills programming.

Camillus House prides itself on its mission-focused approach to providing compassionate services to the poor and needy, utilizing evidence-based models of care in a safe setting— and with the quality standards required of a Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities (CARF)-accredited organization.

Today, Camillus strives to continuously improve programs and services and to meet the unmet needs in our ever- ever-increasingly diverse communities. Looking to the future, Camillus House will continue to develop and enhance programs offered to ensure those experiencing homelessness have the services necessary to rise out of homelessness and into self-sufficiency.
