"Roofs Rising" represents Miami’s greatest reminder that housing ends homelessness

Roofs Rising

Roofs are going to be rising in Miami-Dade County, all for the benefit of our community’s street homeless. The public is invited to enjoy the Miami-Dade County Homeless Trust’s educational art installation entitled “Roofs Rising.”

This unique project – made up of a mosaic of hand painted mini-homes – is designed to call attention to the homeless housing needs in our community. It launches on Homeless Awareness Day November 9.

The mini-homes will eventually become house-warming gifts to those in the Trust’s Continuum of Care, but more importantly, serve to open doors and pathways for supportive housing solutions for those most vulnerable in Miami-Dade.

Learn how you can be part of the solution by visiting Roofs Rising at Brickell City Centre from November 9-15. The viewing area is next to Saks Fifth Avenue on the lower level.
