As we continue to live in a global pandemic, we must pay attention to its effects on our most vulnerable populations: our children.


It’s no surprise that with school closures, heated public policy debates, socioeconomic challenges, and other issues, our young children and teens are dealing with a decline in their mental health.

That’s why we are calling on superheroes like you to step up and create a more just system for our children so they can receive the help they not only need but deserve.

We are so close to reaching our $5.5 million goal. With your generous support, we can raise the remaining $337,032.06 needed to open the doors of the Children’s Crisis Center, which will serve nearly 1,000 children annually from Miami-Dade and Monroe counties who are experiencing a mental health crisis.

The Children’s Crisis Center, scheduled to open in 2023, will be located at 10300 SW 216 St., Miami, FL 33190, adjacent to CHI’s headquarters.

The Children’s Crisis Center will serve as a haven, where children with severe mental illness can heal. The 11,400 sq. ft. facility will have a 24hr in-patient unit with the capability of accommodating up to 20 children at any given time (1,000 annually) and will also house outpatient services for efficient continuity of care. It is designed with a residential feel for optimal functionality and a therapeutic environment. It will house a team of board-certified child/adolescent psychiatrists, social workers, counselors, and clinicians ready to care for children in crisis up to 17 years of age, regardless of their ability to pay.

How you can become a Superhero today.

CHI superheroes have the power to make a difference in the lives of the children in our community with donations of any size.

Superheroes who contribute $250 or $400 have the opportunity to design a Brick of Hope with a customized message which will be displayed at the entrance of the Children’s Crisis Center
