Save Our Youth Miami (SOY Miami) will be conducted as a community-wide, multi-sector campaign to provide an all-inclusive system of care to prevent and focus on youth homelessness within the Miami-Dade communities. The sole purpose of this initiative is to end and prevent youth homelessness, moving forward. SOY Miami will be committed to ensuring that each and every youth experiencing homelessness will have immediate access to shelter, so that they will never have to spend a single night on the street, nor will they have to subject themselves to a life of crime. We will provide them with equal access and honest outcomes for all youth of color, disabilities, and sexual preference. The hope is to provide these youth with temporary shelter, education and employment, permanent connections, stable housing, well-being, public relations, outreach, and funding for schooling.
