ORLANDO, FL –  The Bed & Bread Club of Orange County is a monthly giving program driven by generous people who want to help individuals experiencing homelessness and hardship. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, resources are scarce, but the overwhelming demand for housing, rent assistance, and utility assistance persists. The Salvation Army does not close its doors to people experiencing homelessness, even in the event of a public health crisis like the one we are experiencing now.

When you give to The Salvation Army in Orange County, you are making a direct impact on your community through local programming and services that help displaced individuals in need. You are giving hope to thousands of men, women, and children who come to The Salvation Army every day looking for a helping hand and hope for a brighter future.

With your donation of $12, you can be a light for the hopeless. If 12,000 people pledge to donate $12 for 12 months, we can help 288,000 individuals experiencing homelessness with food, clothing, shelter, case management, and permanent housing assistance.
If 12,000 people pledge to donate $12 for 12 months, we can provide 51,969 food bags to struggling families, which prevents homelessness. If 12,000 people pledge $12 for 12 months, we raise $1.7 million to help meet the needs of this community.

orlando tent shelter covid19 1 landscape

In order to comply with CDC recommendations for social distancing, The Salvation Army Orlando Area Command has erected a 5,200 square foot tent with 50 sleeping cots to accommodate emergency shelter guests. This tent is for current male shelter occupants who would otherwise have nowhere to go because of the additional space needed in the current shelter to abide by updated safety guidelines.

“Through this effort, we are keeping people safe and continuing to provide our regular services to those who are experiencing homelessness during this time of crisis in our community,” says Captain Ken Chapman, Administrator for The Salvation Army’s services in the Orlando area.

The temporary shelter for men was provided by the City of Orlando along with electrically powered fans. For those unable to stay in the shelter or tent, The Salvation Army is providing referrals to other resources and partner agencies.

The Salvation Army in Orlando is also still providing food assistance and clothing vouchers, and has modified community meals to be served in to-go containers for pick-up.
