His House Imagine Charity Gala
With honorary hosts Jay and Jessica Leyva
His House Children’s Home will be celebrating its 30 year anniversary in its annual fund-raising gala, aptly themed “Imagine.” Held at the JW Marriott Marquis Miami, Jay and Jessica Leyva will serve as honorary hosts and the evening will showcase the future of His House and its new forever home.
Sponsors include Royal Caribbean Cruises Ltd. Bacardi, Nancy Hector, Finker-Frenkel Foundation, SeaLand, Discovery Communication, Citrus Healthy Network, Estefan Enterprises.
His House Children’s Home, a private non-profit, faith-based organization, plans to move into its new location in the Fall of 2023. Plans are underway for a home-like campus setting with a capacity for 268 children, staffed with nurturing caregivers. The new His House Campus will also be home to its clinical department – with medical and psycho-social services and case management, crisis intervention enrichment programs, and tutoring services. The new facility is just a few miles away from its current location in Miami Gardens, Florida. Last year alone, close to 1,000 children called His House their home.
“Expansion into the new facility is part of His House’s commitment to increasing capacity to keep sibling groups together, which is critical for their well-being during their traumatic separation from their parents,” said Silvia Smith-Torres, Executive Director, His House Children’s Home.
For 30 years, His House has brought stability to the lives of more than 18,000 children and remains a front-line provider of residential and foster care services. The organization is licensed by the Department of Children and Families in Miami-Dade County as a child caring and child placement agency. His House contracts with Citrus Health Network in Miami-Dade and ChildNet in Broward County.
