Description:

Emergency Housing:
Because emergency shelters in Miami-Dade County do not take walk-ins, the Homeless Helpline is the best way to secure help for anyone experiencing homelessness.

Mobile outreach teams serve as the “front door” to the homeless system and teams canvas the entire geographic area of Miami-Dade County identifying individuals living in places not meant for human habitation such as the streets, cars, parks or abandoned buildings. Our outreach teams also partner with school personnel, police departments and others to identify homeless households.

Outreach teams coordinate with hospitals, courts and other institutions to coordinate and plan the discharge of persons experiencing homelessness.

Designated access points are also established to assess and assist vulnerable homeless sub-populations, including unaccompanied youth, persons fleeing or attempting to flee domestic violence, dating violence, sexual assault or stalking and veterans.

For additional resources and support, call 1-877-994-4357.

Mail Room & Telephone Services:
Anyone experiencing unsheltered homelessness can send and receive mail at:

Camillus House Day Center
1603 NW 7th Avenue
Monday – Friday from 11 a.m. to noon.

Clients are permitted to make free local phone calls and, in some cases, long distance calls are allowed since there are times when someone who became homeless in Miami has family out-of-state and needs assistance to go back home.

Shower services are available at the following locations:
Camillus House Day Center
1603 NW 7th Avenue
Monday – Friday beginning at 6:30 a.m.
