For Immediate Release:

MIAMI— Today Congressman Mario Diaz-Balart (R-FL) visited the Somerville Residence of Camillus House in Downtown Miami.  He met with the Board of Directors and was recognized for his efforts in securing federal funding for Camillus House and Camillus Health Concern.  

“For nearly 50 years, Camillus House has been a true leader in our community providing care to the poor and homeless of South Florida,” said Diaz-Balart.  “I thank the staff and board members of Camillus House for the work they do; it is instrumental and beneficial to those in our community who need it the most.”

In 2008, Diaz-Balart secured over $250,000 in federal funds for an expansion to the already existing Brother Keily Place in Naranja, the Camillus House South Dade Facility in District 25.
