What We Do
The transition from homelessness to self-sufficiency is difficult, discouraging, and expensive. We provide essential needs, financial assistance, counseling, community involvement, and introduction to biblical principles.
Providing the Essentials:
1. Shelter and
Affordable housing is lacking in the Pensacola area. Many are fortunate to live in subsidized housing. Others live in substandard homes. These can be expensive to get into. The utilities are usually surprisingly high. Furniture, bedding, linens and kitchen supplies are often a major expense. We help with the move-in expenses, rent, and finding or purchasing household goods.
Some own cars; others must rely on public transportation or friends. We provide bus passes, assist with vehicle expenses and sometimes provide rides to work, church or appointments.
EBT (Food-Stamps) can sometimes be slow to be started. Sometimes they are suspended due to a clerical error. We provide food in those cases.
4. Personal Items
Soap, toilet paper, diapers, wipes, detergent, shampoo, etc. These essentials cannot be purchased with EBT. We provide a bag of these to 50 or more families every month. Clothing, including school and work uniforms, are purchased or donated.
