Chapman Partnership joined the second annual PhilanthroFest on Saturday, Apr. 6, at Miami Dade College’s Wolfson Campus in downtown Miami, to tell the community about how it helps the homeless have better lives.
“PhilanthroFest has been a wonderful outlet for Chapman Partnership,” said H. Daniel Vincent, president and CEO. “The event gives us free, positive exposure and the opportunity to meet people in our community who might otherwise not know about the work that Chapman Partnership does for the homeless in Miami-Dade County.”
PhilanthroFest sets the stage to give residents the opportunity to learn about nonprofit organizations and other community resources in a family-friendly atmosphere while enjoying music, art, performances, food trucks and other fun activities. PhilanthroFest provided free exhibition space to Chapman Partnership and other nonprofit organizations to promote their mission and connect with the local community.
“At our booth we met with many people interested in volunteering at our two centers, young professionals interested in nextgen, students looking for engaging social action activities, women looking to make a difference by joining Womenade and general inquiries about Chapman,” Vincent said.
“A former resident stopped by to personally thank everyone at Chapman Partnership for helping her and her family in their time of need,” said Holly Woodbury, vice president of development. “That’s all the reward we need. Every success story makes the work Chapman Partnership does for the community worth it.”
Chapman Partnership operates two Homeless Assistance Centers with 800 beds located in Miami and Homestead. It helps the homeless by providing a comprehensive support program that includes emergency shelter, meals, health, dental and psychiatric care, day care, job training, job placement and assistance with securing stable housing.
