Born from the dream of Black activist Doris Ison, CHI has grown into 11 health centers, 35 school-based centers, a mobile medical and a mobile dental unit. For 50 years, we’ve remained committed to our mission, offering a range of accessible services to our South Florida community. Now, we are in the process of constructing our Children’s Crisis Center, the first-ever comprehensive center for children with mental illnesses in South Miami-Dade and Monroe counties.
In honor of this momentous achievement, we were thrilled to host the Golden Legacy 50th Anniversary Gala benefiting our Children’s Crisis Center. Sponsors, donors, community leaders, and staff joined us for a reception, special program, dinner, and entertainment – all while helping us close the gap in mental health care access.
