With a $3,000 Dollars Donation.

(Miami, FL | January, 2018) The Coral Gables Community Foundation has awarded a one-time grant in the amount of $3,000 to Regis House, Inc.

Regis House, Inc. is pleased to announce the creation of the Gables Outreach Program which is made possible thanks to a grant from The Coral Gables Community Foundation.

The Gables Outreach Program (GOP) will provide mental health and substance abuse services for families, and individuals who live, work, study and or participate in activities in the city of Coral Gables areas. It is intended to provide the city of Coral Gables with access to outstanding care and support for clients and families with stigmatized issues that have inundated our community- like mental health and substance abuse.

Regis House was founded in 1984 by the late Roman Catholic Jesuit priest Father Francisco Pérez Lerena. It was established following the tragic death of Kelvin Minnick a youth who struggled with mental health and substance abuse issues and who Father Pérez-Lerena, S.J. had befriended. Since its inception Regis House has served over 90,000 families through a variety of programs and has led the way to help with the education of over 150 student interns. Regis House is also involved with helping children in the school system, having a profound impact on the students that attend our after school program at Melrose Elementary School in Miami.

The Gables Outreach Program will be conducted at both Regis House locations 2010 Northwest 7th Street Miami, Florida 33125 and Regis House South 9245 Southwest 157th SUITE 203 Street Miami, Florida 33157.
