Jesus Salas is a community outreach member for the CHAPMAN Partnership for the Homeless.

Since opening their doors in 1995, Chapman Partnership has admitted nearly 100,000 men, women and children experiencing homelessness in Miami, Fl and the surrounding areas. Their mission to provide comprehensive services to empower homeless residents to become self-sufficient and regain their lives.

Jesus Salas believes that the organization is providing life-altering experiences for the local homeless community. When a person becomes homeless, it affects every aspect of their life. It attacks the person’s self-esteem and makes them feel hopeless. Nothing is more debilitating then feeling helpless in one’s ability to provide for their family and their future.

I am working on bringing awareness to the homeless family situation in South Florida to the Hispanic community. I was deeply touched by visiting the center the first time and seeing the families and the children receiving such an amazing care and support to get their lives back on track” said Jesus Salas.

The center treats each person as an individual and uses a holistic approach to care. Chapman Partnership not only provides emergency housing, but also provides a wide array of programs such as: comprehensive case management; health, mental and dental care; day care and after school services; job development, training, and placement, plus help from a variety of social service agencies, volunteers, donors and partners

Along the way to 100,000 admissions, Chapman Partnership has also achieved many other impressive milestones such as: So far, they have admitted nearly 20,000 homeless children and with the help of their 20,000 volunteers, they serve 3 hot meals a day, 365 days a year, adding up to 800,000 meals per year. Chapman Partnership also offers medical and dental. Their two medical clinics have seen more than 167,000 patient and their mobile dental unit has performed more than 76,500 procedures. What What impresses Jesus Salas the most is the organizations success rate, which is an amazing 64% in placing their residents into permanent or transitional housing compared to the nations average of 15%.

Besides being a committee outreach member for Chapman Partnership, Jesus Salas is also involved in other community organizations such as the Children Youth Life Foundation for the terminally ill kids, being the co-chair for Miami Children’s Hospital Foundation “Inaugural Gentleman’s Night”,  raised over $400k for the inaugural event for the foundation.

 Past toy drives have been enormous events, with visits from local celebrities – like the mascot of the Florida Marlins baseball team, Billy the Marlin.

Jesus Zeus Salas Talks About Fundraising

For most non-profit organizations, fundraising is the key to success. Without volunteers doing what they can to garner donations from supporters, activities screech to a halt, and populations and causes go on being underserved. Jesus Zeus Salas, a radio broadcasting professional in Miami, is deeply involved in a number of charitable causes within his community, and has chaired multiple events (such as the Gentlemen’s Night for the Miami Children’s Hospital) that have required a significant amount of fundraising acumen. Here, Jesus Zeus Salas shares some of his tips for successful fundraising.

Start Early. In order to reach your fundraising goal, Jesus Zeus Salas highly recommends getting the word out about events and beginning to collect donations well in advance. Try to do things last minute, Jesus Zeus Salas says, and you’re more likely to fall up short.

Advertise Widely. One of the most crucial parts of fundraising is alerting friends, family, and the community at large that you’re having an event or campaign. As a broadcasting professional, Jesus Zeus Salas knows how to get a message out, but the basic principle is simple. Cast a wide net, invest in professional-quality materials, and be persistent.

Go Beyond Cash. When planning an event, Jesus Zeus Salas says to remember that you can ask for donations of more than just money. Planning to have food at your event? Locate a caterer or restaurant who would be willing to donate their services. Want to create flyers, brochures, or event programs? Find a printer who wants to support your cause. The possibilities are endless.

Be Patient. Fundraising is an ongoing process, says Jesus Zeus Salas, and it’s one that requires patience. Don’t expect one event to raise all of the money you’ll ever need. Instead, consider holding seasonal fundraising events, and make your organization’s biggest event of the year an annual one.

Jesus Salas Joins Toy Giveaway for Less Fortunate

Jesus Salas was the Master of Ceremony for the Children and Youth Life Christmas event toy giveaway. This event began 16 years ago for disabled, terminally ill and disadvantaged children to be able to experience a Magical Christmas that due to dire needs they would never have had. The foundation President Lillian Vila along with Dr. Garcia have worked diligently to make this event a success each year.

“A lot of these children do not have a long life due to medical illness or condition and this is a chance to put a smile on these beautiful children” Jesus Salas said.

For Jesus Salas, charity and kindness are traits that are a part of regular, everyday life. Always willing to help someone out of a jam, Jesus Salas will put aside anything in order to help your situation.

As a highly successful achiever, Jesus Salas knows that there’s a lot to be said for hard work. However, Jesus Salas doesn’t put so much stock in hard work that he forgets about the role of charity. After all, not everyone can turn around their immediate situation with a good dose of hard work. Some people are truly down on their luck, and need a helping hand to pull them up and get them “back in the game.”
