The Homeless Trust
Help end veteran homelessness
The Miami VA and the Miami-Dade County Homeless Trust, together with our partners, are calling on active and retired veterans to join our outreach teams to identify and engage the few remaining street homeless veterans in Miami-Dade County.
The Continuum of Care is seeking individuals who possess the following unique qualities needed to help some of the most vulnerable veterans in our community, with the goal of getting them off the streets and housed.
- Understanding of personal limitations
- Ability to communicate effectively
- Ability to listen
Active and retired service members are sought to partner with experienced outreach workers from July - August, 2-3 times per week, devoting an hour for each veteran outreach mission.
Interested veterans are urged to contact Victoria Mallette, Executive Director, Miami-Dade County Homeless Trust, at firstname.lastname@example.org or 305-375-1491.
Be among the first responders to help veterans in crisis. Ensure no veteran is left behind.

Miami-Dade County Homeless Plan Re-Alignment: Priority Home
On December 6, 2013, the Miami-Dade County Homeless Trust Board, acting in its capacity as the Continuum of Care Board for the Miami-Dade County Continuum of Care, completed a review of the implementation of the Miami-Dade County Community Homeless Plan.
The Board reviewed the core strategies and initiatives of the Plan as approved in 1994, as well as the additional essential elements included in 2004, and developed new initiatives and strategies designed to further align the key categories of the Plan to the current identified policies and priorities identified by the United States Department of Housing and Urban Development.
These additional initiatives and strategies build around the core Plan, which includes housing (Emergency, Transitional, Permanent and Rapid Re-Housing), outreach and supportive services. A copy of the alignments to the Plan, called PRIORITY HOME, reflecting these additional initiative and strategies, as well as updates on the implementation of the core Plan strategies and initiatives, was available for comment.
Romero-Britto designed meters throughout Miami-Dade County
Did you know that Miami-Dade County residents give millions of dollars to panhandlers each year? The fact is that not all who panhandle are homeless. Even if they are homeless, giving them money is not an effective means to help them. That's why we are deploying our Romero-Britto designed meters throughout Miami-Dade County.
They are a safe, reliable and fully accountable means for you to help people who are homeless because 100% of the money collected in these meters is used directly to fund additional shelter beds, and expand the number of indoor meal programs for people experiencing homelessness. When you see one of our homeless donation meters, please consider giving your change to change a life.
