Expanded Capacity to Serve in 2019

As we close in on 2019’s final days, let’s appreciate the accomplishments and prepare to see 2020 for what it could be - an opportunity to be better together.

In January, our community received a Domestic Violence Bonus Grant of $496,014, which meant more funding for rapid rehousing. On February 14th, our friends at Sulzbacher launched the Urban Rest Stop, a demonstration of community love.

April welcomed the Built For Zero Initiative with additional funding and focused on Ending Veterans Homelessness. May greeted the 2nd Annual State of Homelessness and Volunteer Appreciation Breakfast with data from the 2019 Point-In-Time Count Report and volunteer recognition.

October was not scary, Florida Blue shared a treat and funding to support our youth project, and we received a Homeless Management Information System Capacity Building grant, now that's expanding capacity, for real.

We had lots of gratitude in November. HUD designated the Sulzbacher Village as an EnVision Center, the first in Florida. United Way and partners launched Mission United for Veterans, a network connecting Veterans to services. 

From where we've been 2020, you're looking good already!
