The Clothes Closet
Our clothes closet helps provide our families with clothing for:

  • Seasonal changes
  • School
  • Growing children
  • New babies
  • Our career clothes closet has clothing for:
  • Successful interviewing
  • Needed clothing and shoes for the job

The Classroom

We hold parenting workshops 4-7 times a year to help parents with the difficult job of child rearing:

  • Communication
  • Self-discipline
  • Responsibility
  • Problem solving skills
  • Self-esteem


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, 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 2020 we provided gifts for 1,910


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.

 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 located at 3848 E Parsons Point Road - near our former office.



The support from our staff of volunteers and our community sponsors is what makes our many programs possible.
