What We Do
The best way to combat homelessness in our community is to prevent it from happening in the first place. Escambia County has a wealth of resources for low-income families or those experiencing financial difficulties. We connect struggling families with local and government programs that can provide assistance in their specific situations as well as provide guidance and support with the goal of combating homelessness.
For those actively experiencing homelessness in our community, we provide:
computers and internet access
support and guidance
transportation to/from shelter and Day Center
Through our Interfaith Hospitality Network, faith organizations provide unoccupied space as a safe, warm place for families to sleep at night. Our Day Center provides a place for families to meet basic needs including hot meals, showers, and laundry facilities. The staff and volunteers at the Day Center provide case management connecting families with financial resources and assisting in the search for jobs, affordable housing, and education as well as offer mentorship and support. Transportation for families is also provided to and from shelter locations and the Day Center.
If your family is in need of assistance check out a full list of resources and information here.
