Lotus House

Lotus House

The Lotus House Women’s Shelter was established in 2006 to serve homeless women in Overtown, Miami. It was the first initiative of the Sundari Foundation, a non-denominational, non-profit organization dedicated to improving the lives of poor, disadvantaged and homeless women, youth and children.  

 

Utilizing an innovative, trauma-informed, holistic format, Lotus House provides shelter and multi-faceted, comprehensive supportive services, including access to medical and mental health care, parenting education, counseling and parent/child therapy, life skills and educational advancement, job readiness training, and a host of enrichment activities from art and acupuncture to yoga and meditation offering alternative pathways to healing.

The shelter houses over 250 women and children on a daily basis, 680 annually. Families are permitted to live free up to a year, giving them the time and tools needed to heal, improve the quality of their lives, achieve greater self-sufficiency, and transition to new homes. 

Lotus House addresses the special needs of homeless women, youth and children to help break the cycle of childhood abuse, domestic violence and homelessness. Residents are given the sanctuary, support, education and resources they need to heal, grow, and blossom into who they were truly meant to be.
