NEW HORIZONS TRIPS
Figuratively and literally Miami City Mission Youth Center is committed to providing children with "new horizons". Many of the children and teenagers we work with have not traveled outside of Miami. There are several reasons for this: Primarily many of the families of the children we work with are not involved with events requiring them to leave the area in proximity to their home and many just can't afford to take a trip. We are committed to annual trips to broaden our children's horizons.
