GAP

SOLUTION

People who are homeless that get an apartment often need furnishings and supplies

Clients attend classes and meet with mentors to earn vouchers to get furniture and household items from our store and cleaning, kitchen, & paper items from our Essentials Pantry. 

GAP

SOLUTION

Many people become homeless because they do not have the necessary skills to be
self-sustaining.

Provide life skill classes (budgeting, meal planning, completing job applications, etc.), Bible studies, gardening, etc.

GAP

SOLUTION

Jacksonville does not have a homeless prevention program, and people do not know where to turn for help. 

We provide resources to help pay back-rent and utilities.  Clients can attend classes to earn vouchers to get use for debt.

GAP

SOLUTION

No central location for information and/or resources, assistance, assessment, or to complete assessments

We distribute resource information, complete intakes and assessments and assist in forms and paperwork for people who are homeless or facing homelessness.
