Little House Project

Providing Homes for Broward's Homeless 

    Our Role:

    There are more than 2,800 homeless people on any given day in our community and dollars are urgently needed to provide them with homes and supportive services. 

    The Little House Project is a simple way to raise money and improve the lives of so many in need. We encourage your business, employees and children to join us!


    how does it work:

    1. Get a Little House. Fill it up with change. 
      • We all have spare change lying around the house - why not turn that change into housing for homeless families? 
      • Pick up your Little House at National Christian Foundation
        • Please call to arrange a pickup of your Little House at 754.900.2112
          • Pickup Days/Times Monday - Friday 9:00am - 4:00pm
          • 5110 N. Federal Highway, Suite 101 Fort Lauderdale, FL 33308 
    2. Donate Digitally. Don't have time to grab a house.... Give online by clicking the link below or text LittleHouseBC to 41444. 
    3. Drop It Off. Once you have filled your Little House, please return to participating locations by Monday, December 2nd.

    About United We End Homelessness 

    United Way of Broward County and the Greater Fort Lauderdale Alliance created a joint initiative, United We End Homelessness, to find new solutions and strategies to end homelessness as we know it in our community. In addition, they convened a group of business leaders, The Broward Business Council on Homelessness, to lead the initiative by providing: 

    • Philanthropic support for homeless service providers and to assist in filling in financial gaps
    • Political influence and oversight for accountability of government and private dollars spent in the homeless continuum of care 
    • Data and research to understand the cost of homelessness in our community and the cost to implement Housing First 
    • Housing for individuals who are chronically homeless 

    To date, 80 persons have been relocated from the encampment near the downtown Broward County Library. Of those relocated, 70 have been placed in housing, 3 were reunited with families and 7 refused services. A contract was created with three local agencies who specialize in homeless services, provided outreach services and furniture to those relocated.
