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.
With $12, you can become a part of an Army FIGHTING FOR GOOD!

At the Salvation Army, our doors are open every day, and night of the year. Through our emergency housing facilities, homeless shelters, transitional living centers, group homes, and family shelters, we provide over 10 million nights of lodging annually. In addition to supplying shelter from the elements, beds, food, and basic hygiene resources to those in need, we help combat long-term homelessness in America by serving homeless adults, veterans, and children with holistic physical, emotional, and spiritual support.

Striving to solve homelessness in Miami, our shelter provides a safe transitional environment to up to 260 persons at a time including women, men and intact families. A dedicated team of experts work consistently with the objective that our residents become self-sufficient and move to permanent housing, the average stay being 90 days. Services include all meals, periodical medical visits, assistance for benefits and extensive case management to reach clients’ psychological, sociological and concrete needs. HIV education, Narcotics and Alcoholic Anonymous meetings are available as needed.
