Modello/South Dade Neighborhood Empowerment Program

Partnering With Miami Dade County Government

In 1987, we implemented the Modello/South Dade Neighborhood Empowerment Program, which provides Counseling, Tutoring, Recreation, and other activities to Public Housing Project Youth. All youth in our program are referred to us by either the Public School System, juvenile authorities, the police department, or others. Miami-Dade County provides us funding for this program.

We’re All Linked Together As One


We are only as strong as we are united, as weak as we are divided.
