Be The Good
The mission of The Salvation Army is "...To preach the gospel of Jesus Christ and to meet human needs in His name without discrimination."
The Orlando Metropolitan Area Command has served the Orange County community for an entire century. Currently, our community is at the center of a housing crisis. We provide emergency and transitional housing for women, children, men, and veterans experiencing homelessness. We work closely with city leaders and other local assistance agencies to render services that help our clients escape the cycle of multi-generational poverty with:
- Emergency shelter (300 beds per night)
- Case management
- Homelessness prevention through rent, mortgage, and essential utility assistance
- Affordable transitional housing, rapid rehousing, housing-first wrap-around supportive services
- Low-income housing for senior citizens
- Pathway of Hope - long-term recovery into self-sufficiency
- Prgrams that teach self-care, self-sufficiency, and financial responsibility
The Salvation Army is also in the fight to combat hunger. We provide:
- 1000 meals every weekday
- An Annual Thanksgiving Feast
- Food bags for families in need
- Nutritious meals every week for over 150 at-risk youth
We offer character-building, music & sports, summer camps, and educational programs for kids in our community. Through our Angel Tree program, thousands of children and senior citizens wake up to gifts on Christmas morning. Thanks to the giving hearts of our donors, we're able to Be The Good working to stabilize those who are experiencing poverty.
