Chapman Partnership, formerly known as Community Partnership for Homeless, is a non-profit Florida charity, a 501(c) (3) corporation, governed by a Board of Directors. Our mission is to operate two Homeless Assistance Centers and to raise the private funding necessary to assist in the implementation of the Miami-Dade County Community Homeless Plan. Chapman Partnership is further committed to assisting the Miami-Dade County Homeless Trust in this implementation through encouraging private sector involvement.
Chapman Partnership a homeless, non-profit charity in Miami, grew out of the grave concern local citizens and politicians had about the growing problem of homelessness. The late Governor Lawton Chiles appointed a blue-ribbon panel (“Governor’s Commission on Homeless”) to address this issue. The Governor’s Commission on Homeless in 1992 and 1993 developed a strategic plan to serve the homeless in Florida. This plan called for a joint public–private sector partnership to respond to the growing problem of homelessness within Miami-Dade County. Chapman Partnership serves as the private sector partner and the Miami-Dade County Homeless Trust is the public partner.
The capital and operational needs of Chapman Partnership are funded largely by the one percent sales tax on food and beverages at certain restaurants in Miami-Dade County. Charitable foundations, corporations, and individuals provide the remainder of the financial needs of Chapman Partnership .
Currently, Chapman Partnership operates two Homeless Assistance Centers – The Chapman Center in downtown Miami and the South Miami-Dade Center in Homestead.
The accomplishments of Chapman Partnership have been exceptional. Since opening our doors in 1995, 61.82% of our former residents have successfully moved off the streets of Miami-Dade and on their way to attaining greater stability and self-sufficiency. Clearly, the greatest accomplishment, however, is the difference being made in the lives of the homeless from within our community.
