To Eliminate Homelessness among Veterans in Central Florida

When we were first founded in 2008, there were approximately 4,500 homeless veterans living in Central Florida, 1,800 of which lived in Brevard County. As of January 2018, Brevard County’s population has been reduced to 216, an amazing 88% reduction over 10 years! How did we do it? We tackle homelessness directly where it exists…on the streets of our community. We proactively go out to find our clients through street level outreach where they live, provide basic needs to ensure their survival and build rapport, and connect them to any organization that offers a service beneficial to them, rapidly moving from homeless to housed. Additionally, as our population of unsheltered veterans decreased, we began to focus on prevention activities for the over 4,400 at-risk veterans in our community, who more often than not require rapid financial intervention in the form of rent/utility payments to remain housed.

While we are very proud of the work we have accomplished, we still have a ways to go before we can say mission complete, as there are still 1,300 homeless veterans in the greater Central Florida area that need our assistance. While being successful at your primary purpose as an organization is the most important factor, it is just as important to be fiscally responsible. That is why we are so proud of our 92% program service ratio  for 2018, as well as our continuous Gold Star rating on GuideStar, the trusted leader in non-profit accountability.
