MIAMI Association of REALTORS® members will feed approximately 500 homeless people Tuesday, June 13 at the Chapman Partnership’s Miami Homeless Assistance Center in Downtown Miami.
The Chapman Partnership — which runs homeless assistance centers in Downtown Miami and Homestead — provides personal assistance to the homeless by giving care, a nurturing environment, training to improve life skills and much more and they have 64% success rate in getting people to be self reliant.
The MIAMI Realtors’ Dinner for the Homeless will start with a tour of the Chapman Partnership’s Downtown Miami Homeless Assistance Center located at 1550 North Miami Ave. The Realtors will then help in handing out the dinner from 5-7 p.m. Learn more at the Miami Relater’s website.
In addition to helping the homeless, the Miami Realtors awarded a $10,000 grant to Miami-Dade County Animal Services, in January which allows local veterans care for their pets. MIAMI provided its “Patriot Pets” grant through its participation in Florida Realtors’ 100 Years, 100 Families program.
MIAMI has also partnered with events to benefit the Ludlam Trail — the proposed conversion of an old Miami rail line into a six-mile-long bike path and park — and the Underline — the proposed 10-mile linear park and urban trail running below Metrorail from Brickell station to Dadeland South station.
In May, the MIAMI Realtors spearheaded a major beautification project of one of Miami Gardens’ busiest commercial corridors. MIAMI Realtors painted several dilapidated commercial buildings at the U.S. 441 corridor. The project will help the City of Miami Gardens as it prepares to host America’s most-watched sporting event: Super Bowl LIV in 2020.
