Caring for Miami continues to monitor and evaluate the ongoing COVID-19 global health pandemic. We are taking all necessary measures to protect the health and wellbeing of our partners, our staff and our volunteers.
Based on what we know today and following the guidance of local and national government, we have postponed or cancelled a number of upcoming volunteer events. We will continue to reassess the situation, and will continue to keep you updated on volunteer opportunities with Caring For Miami.
Please read on to learn more about how Caring For Miami is continuing to respond to the needs of our community through our various programs.
In an effort to ensure low income, uninsured patients can still access the care that they need, we are now taking community referrals from our trusted partners and friends. Our mobile dental clinic is working hard to ensure that every one of your patients has access to the care they need and do not resort to the Emergency Department for care. Our dental clinic is open Monday – Friday to provide comprehensive dental care to our patients, appointments are required. In addition, and in response to the rapidly changing circumstances we are also offering virtual dental consultations to new and existing patients.
For questions or to schedule an appointment please contact us at 786-430-1051 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
In response to COVID19 and in an effort to ensure that food insecure children have access to the weekend meals they need Caring For Miami quickly restructured to ensure at risk children were provided weekend meals through front porch drop offs.
Currently, our Backpack Program is working with a number of Miami Dade County Schools to feed 500 children through our Backpack Program. We are now providing volunteer opportunities for meal pick up and delivery to schools. For information on how you can volunteer please visit caringformiami.org/volunteer.
