Community Partnership for Homeless changes name to Chapman Partnership

New name reflects commitment of founding Chairman Alvah H. Chapman Jr. to the homeless

MIAMI, FL – Oct. 3, 2011 – Community Partnership for Homeless announced today that the nonprofit organization’s board of directors has approved a name change to Chapman Partnership.

The name change reflects the long lasting commitment spearheaded by the organization’s founding Chairman Alvah H. Chapman Jr. to helping homeless individuals and families get off the streets of Miami-Dade County and lead productive, self-sufficient lives.

“It is our desire to honor founding Chairman Alvah Chapman Jr. for his leadership and vision for our community,” Chairman Trish Bell said. “He was the driving force that built our organization from humble beginnings as the private sector partner of the Miami-Dade County Homeless Trust into a nationally recognized model for its comprehensive approach to helping the homeless.”

Chapman Partnership’s catalyst for success during its 16-year history is its Homeless Assistance Centers. Operating as one-stop temporary care entry points, the centers provide basic needs for food and shelter along with comprehensive case management, health care, daycare, job training and other assistance from a variety of social service agencies all under one roof.

“Above all, however, is our deeply held conviction that those temporarily homeless persons in our care shall always be treated with the greatest compassion, dignity and respect,” Bell said.

Alvah H. Chapman Jr. was the former publisher of The Miami Herald, chairman of the Knight Ridder newspapers and one of South Florida’s most influential philanthropic and civic leaders. Chapman was a soft-spoken gentleman who believed public service was a responsibility and a way local businesses could help build and foster a society. Throughout his lifetime, he helped rebuild downtown Miami, worked to house the homeless, and led the “We Will Rebuild” campaign after Hurricane Andrew in 1992.
