HDS Foundation was selected by The Miami Foundation to participate in Give Miami Day for the Second Consecutive Year

Each year, The Miami Foundation hosts Give Miami Day to encourage individuals to become philanthropists for a 24-hour period. Give Miami Day has become one of the largest annual giving events in the United States. Through online giving, this movement brings together nonprofits of all sizes to celebrate and increase generosity in Greater Miami. The HDS Foundation is honored to have been chosen to participate in this incredible day of giving for the second consecutive year. Our selection confirms the vital role our programs serve and motivates the community to donate in support of our mission.

HDS Companies founder CEO Cristina Miranda Gilson confirms the Corporation’s financial commitment to generously match ALL donations made to the HDS Foundation (HDSF) through Give Miami Day, on Thursday, November 17, 2022. The dollar-for-dollar match will further support the HDSF’s flagship programs, which directly impact the lives of high school students who are part of the South Florida Autism community.

The HDS Foundation offers programs and service opportunities that promote independent and semi-independent living for teens and young adults with Autism Spectrum Disorder or related abilities. Structured as grants, our programs support the development of work and daily living skills and socio-educational transitional experiences through specific school-based partnerships. Our goal is to help this growing population with diverse abilities to bridge the gap and support their post-secondary journey, strengthening their chances for meaningful, long-term employment and self-sufficiency. The HDS Foundation is poised to help educate and provide information related to available, safe, and affordable housing options that can further the possibilities of attaining independent or semi-independent housing.
