John went home to Baltimore. He was homeless and on the streets of Jacksonville. We purchased a ticket to get him home to his family.
As a supporter you can help us to make a difference. Every little bit helps.
Adam was homeless and desperately seeking a way to get home to West Virginia. With the help of our supporters we were able to send him home.
We love helping our Street Friends in the community and we help out the many other nonprofits here in Jacksonville that do the same.
They make it happen
You can find us feeding the homeless every week in Downtown Jacksonville
The good news is the homeless rate has decreased by more than 9% from 2018 to 2019. New data from Changing Homelessness shows that in 2018 in Duval County, there were 1,640 homeless persons. In 2019 that number decreased to 1,494. We are doing our part to help the homeless in our community.
We reach out to the homeless on a regular basis to supply them with much need hygiene items and food packages. We are always accepting donations for these items.
Supplying the homeless with items such as book bags, blankets, hats, gloves, socks, food, water, and hygiene items during the winter months is something we take pride in.
Teddy bears benefit children in their development because they can reduce anxiety and stress in children. Part of the reason why teddy bears provide comfort for children is because these transitional objects give children a sense of protection and security. We donate teddy bears many times throughout the year to the kids in care and are always accepting donations.
We are accepting toy donations all year round. At Christmas time all donations are given to the children in care so they have gifts to open while they are separated from their families.
It is important for our youth to stay involved in positive activities throughout our community. We sponsored these young athletes who excelled and made the all star team.
The Jacksonville Beach Barracudas were involved in four tournaments: Fort Caroline, Julington Creek, Orange Park, and Bennett Park. They won their bracket and competed in the State Tournament in West Palm Beach! Way to go boys!!!!
Our mission is only as strong as the community that supports it. Together, we can do more than we can do alone. Let's bring our abilities and passions together to affect real change. All services offered are contingent upon donations available at the time services are requested.
