Favela Miami is asking for your help to implement the following projects. Your donation is tax deductible to the extent allowed by the law. Favela Miami Corp. is a registered 501(c)(3) organization.
* Portable Showers: The opportunity to stay clean is an important step in uplifting the spirits and self-esteem of the Homeless. With your donation, Favela Miami will be able to provide portable showers to the Homeless at least 2 times a week. This will give them dignity.
* Clean Our City: Your donation can assist in hiring a cleaning crew of up to 20 Homeless per month. Having a job will help them build their resume, as well as reintegrate into society and save for rent to get out of the streets. Goal: $48,000
* Help house, teach, feed and employ the Homeless: Favela Miami has several initiatives in place to help the Homeless rejoin the workforce. Your donation will help continue and expand these projects. For specifics, please go to Volunteer tab. Goal: TBD
"Blessing Bags" will help the Homeless have better hygiene and therefore better health. In the period of several days, hundreds of Blessing Bags were distributed to the Homeless from 87th to 1st St. Each bag contained 2 pairs of socks, washcloth, shampoo, conditioning, tooth brush, tooth paste, razor, soap, deodorant, comb, chapstick, hand sanitize and a list of Local Resources, including medical, mental help, drug & alcohol recovery, workplace agency, etc. All in a gallon size ziploc so they don't get wet.
