Community Engagement

Camillus House

Thanks to the volunteer and funding efforts of HandsOn Miami, the Camillus House, a Miami-based not-for-profit providing humanitarian services for the poor and homeless of South Florida,Camillus House will receive a new restorative garden and multi-use event space. The 9500 sf underutilized open space was damaged during Hurricane Irma.

Included in this restorative garden design will be an event and stage space for the organization’s Therapeutic Communities program which brings art, yoga, choir and spoken word classes to their clients. The construction of the design will be executed through community services projects organized by HandsOn Miami. To kick-off this new initiative, we partnered once again with Unconventional Group and Artist, Ernesto Maranje to set the stage with a community mural on the west wall creating a backdrop for the stage. The mural was completed by community volunteers on September 29th, 2018. The next phase of the restorative garden to commence Fall of 2018, elements will include custom designed community gathering tables amidst the palm court, paved and raised deck performance area, and raised beds for the chef’s garden to serve over 1,100 Camillus House guests.

The second phase was fully funded by corporate sponsor and Fortune 100 company, Dow Chemical and was completed early March 2019. The early phases of work installed by both DOW leaders on a Volunteer Day managed by HandsOn Miami, and local landscape contractors was completed on February 20, 2019. The final areas of improvement include the palm court paving for events and community gathering tables will was completed in spring 2019.
