Miami Bridge Youth & Family Services is a shelter for abandoned and abused children and teens ages 10-17, a majority of whom are runaways, homeless youth and victims of trafficking and exploitation. Because of this, the shelter works closely with the FBI and State Attorney’s Office to expand services and help rescue more victims of human trafficking.  Florida, ranks third for crime behind California and Texas. Miami Bridge offers education and essential skills, such as cooking, to the youth living on campus.

If you would like to volunteer or visit the shelter, go to http://www.miamibridge.org/

Miami Bridge accepts in-kind donations. You may donate your expertise and time, clothes or a small amount of money. Everything will be used in turn for the benefit of saving another life, taking a youth off the streets.
