Carrfour, whose name means “Crossroads” in French, is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization founded in 1993 by the Homeless Committee of the Greater Miami Chamber of Commerce. Its mission is to provide permanent housing and supportive services to maximize the self-sufficiency of the formerly homeless in Miami-Dade County and other cities in Florida through joint ventures with various non-profit organizations.
The services Carrfour provides make the difference between a productive life and falling into homelessness, often again and again, for lack of a permanent housing solution. At the helm of Carrfour as President is Stephanie Berman. Carrfour has become the leading provider of supportive housing in Miami-Dade, assembling over $70 million to develop and operate 700 units of supportive housing.
Projects operating and underway will provide 800 units of affordable housing for approximately 1000 people. Ultimately, Carrfour plans to develop at least 1,500 units of supportive housing in Miami-Dade County. This represents approximately 50% of the unmet need for supportive housing units in this area according to the Continuum of Care Needs Analysis generated by a multi-agency survey effort in Miami-Dade County.
