Services:
As the largest homeless services provider in the region, Coalition for the Homeless of Central Florida addresses the needs of homeless men, women and children in their community and serves as a catalyst for community collaboration to end homelessness. What began in 1987 as an organization providing emergency shelter to homeless men has since evolved into one that also responds to the needs of the area’s growing number of homeless women and families with children. Last fiscal year, Coalition for the Homeless served more than 4,100 homeless people.  Within this population served, there were almost 500 families with over 800 children. On a given night, they served nearly 200 children; their average age was six. In the past decade alone, the Coalition has served more than 50,000 homeless men, women and children.  

The Women’s Residential and Counseling Center (WRCC) Transitional Housing Program serves up to 138 people a day - single women and mothers with children who are no longer in crisis but who still need supportive services. Located on the Coalition’s second Orlando campus, this program offers the second step to self-sufficient living. Case managers help women further/complete job training, increase employability, obtain/maintain employment at a living wage, improve health, and increase financial stability. Mental health counseling is also available as are specialized victims services. Approximately 75% of clients served by the WRCC Transitional Housing Program are victims of crime, predominantly domestic violence.Program:Community Housing ProgramBudget: $233,169Category: HousingPopulation Served: Homeless Program Description: This program provides the most independent housing option with supportive services offered to individuals and families living in the community. The program offers temporary rental assistance as well as case management which focuses on the completion of job training (if needed), maintaining employment at a living wage, and continuing to increase financial stability. Clients are required to reduce debt and/or save money with the funds not being spent on rent. This prepares them for their final transition to self-sufficiency.



First, all relationships are with yourself-and sometimes they involve other people. Second, the most important relationship in your life-the one you have, like it or not, until the day you die-is with yourself.
