Taking place on November 3, the Imagine Charity Gala brought together His House Children’s Home (HHCH) and its supporters to celebrate the organization’s past accomplishments and look toward the future. The event featured musical performances, a live auction, and a presentation on HHCH’s “Forever Home” project. Forever Home is a new campus slated to be completed in 2020, featuring brand-new facilities intended to enhance the lives of children in the organization’s care. It includes residential and recreational facilities as well as administrative buildings and a school.
“Expansion into the new facility is part of His House’s commitment to increasing capacity to keeping sibling groups together,” said Executive Director Silvia Smith-Torres on the new campus.
The Gala also featured stories from some of the individuals affected by the care of HHCH. Usa Rodriguez spoke on the impact that the organization had made on him and his brothers. Though the foster care system was difficult for them, they fondly recall the efforts of HHCH to keep them together and happy during those trying times. Now, all of the brothers are employed and continue to work toward improving themselves and others.
The Finker-Frenkel Family Foundation was proud to sponsor this event. Our organization, dedicated to the cause of children’s welfare, has supported other homes in the past as they provide safe environments and education for their residents. The Foundation is proud to see the progress made by His House and is excited to support their future initiatives.
Since 1989, His House Children’s Home has been dedicated to the cause of ensuring a happy upbringing for children. All children deserve the chance to grow up in a safe and nurturing environment, and HHCH provides the resources necessary to be a pillar of the foster care system. Based in Miami, this faith-based organization specializes in caring for children in state custody.
HHCH also provides programs for teen mothers, ensuring that they have a safe environment to raise their child. The program includes education for new mothers as well as social services and private lodging for them and their children. Initiatives like these are how His House adapts to the community’s wide variety of care needs.
At-risk children deserve a place to grow, and His House Children’s Home is proud to create a productive environment for them. We at the Finker-Frenkel Family foundation look forward to seeing what the future holds for this incredible organization.
