Bike to Work

We provide bikes for people to use as transportation.

Having transportation allows people to find work and eventually to leave the world of homelessness.

Some families who have a home are still not able to get from place to place and these bikes

add to their quality of life.

Santa's Workshop

All children look forward to Christmas, although some won't find any toys or gifts under the tree Christmas morning, unless we have your help. The children we help are referred from a number of sources. These include: Low Income Housing, The Centers, Economic Services, Foster care, CASA abuse shelter, subsidized child care, Deaf services, and those that schools and teachers recognize in need.

 

The Citrus County Family Resource Center coordinates community sponsors who want to make Christmas brighter for area children. Children typically receive clothing, underwear, socks and some toys as well as special need items. In 2014 we provided gifts for 1977 children.

Connections Outreach Center

We were able to open the long awaited outreach center in 2011
This center offers help to local residents to connect with the services needed by their families. Many other agencies participate by stationing a representative at the building. Currently a person from The Centers is available on Thursday afternoons. The representative from veterans Services is there on alternate Tuesdays. A representative from the department of Children and Families comes on the last Friday of the month to help with food stamp or medicaid problems. There are computers available for people to look for work and for people to send an email to family. There are two other computers available for people to use to apply for state services. This building is two doors down the road from our main offices at 3848 E Parsons Point Road.
