Donating to Kristi House

The programs and services at Kristi House and the Orlowitz-Lee Children’s Advocacy Center are made possible through the generosity and support of individuals, corporations and private foundations, combined with local, state and federal funding. In some instances, individual and corporate contributions are used as matching funds to obtain grants. With public funding only covering a little over half of the cost of services needed by our community each year, the importance of individual, corporate and private foundation donations cannot be overstated.

Competitive Government Grants & Contracts

Kristi House competes for local, state and federal grants on an ongoing basis. State and local funding is received from the Department of Children and Families, Miami-Dade County Office of Grants Management, City of Miami Gardens, the State of Florida and the Victims of Crimes Act (VOCA). All grant funds are restricted to providing child-victims specific services at Kristi House.

Kristi House receives major federal funding from the U.S. Department of Justice, National Children’s Alliance and the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services through grant awards. Currently, Kristi House receives federal SAMHSA funds for a community capacity building multi-year program around evidence-based interventions for child sexual-related trauma, the Miami C-START program. Funds from the Department of Justice, Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention and Office of Victims of Crime support Project GOLD with funding for enhancing community mentoring and reaching specialized populations of human trafficking victims. As with many state and federally funded programs, monies are never guaranteed. The pies show the breakdown of funding sources and how they are used.

Private, Corporate, and Family Foundation Gifts and Grants

Through referrals, personal contacts and corporate recommendations, Kristi House seeks funding from private, corporate, and family foundations to support program operations each year. Grants from such foundations cover a range of programming, therapeutic and technological systems.
