Homeless children were also returning to school Monday.
The Chapman Community Partnership for the Homeless, founded in 1995, operates two centers that offer children in need shelter. One is in downtown Miami and the other is in Homestead.
The non-profit organization reports that there are about 200 children in need. The centers have family dorms, a family resource center and a day care for children up to five-years-old.
With Monday approaching, the organization has been running their annual back to school drive. With the help of the center, some of the children have gone to become honor roll students despite the difficulties they face.
They are collecting donations. The children need school uniforms, backpacks, and school supplies. Financial donations for after school care and internet essentials are also welcome.
