OUR VALUES

PHILIPPIANS PLACE

GAP

SOLUTION

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

We distribute resource information, complete intakes and assessments for people who are homeless or are about to be homeless.

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 clients receiving permanent supportive housing may not have funds for utility deposits.

Provide services to help pay back-rent, utility and rent deposits. Clients can attend life skills classes, or volunteer to earn vouchers

GAP

SOLUTION

People who are homeless getting an apartment often need furnishings and supplies

Clients volunteer and attend classes to earn vouchers to get furniture and supplies
