Rescue Outreach Mission exists to serve disadvantaged people throughout Central Florida,
by providing resources that help prevent homelessness and by helping those who are
already homeless return to self-sufficiency.
The small things matter. As we are celebrating this year's Christmas and holiday festivities, please do not forget about our children. Help us make sure that the homeless boys and girls at the Blanche Bell Weaver Women and Children’s Center can sleep comfortably in a NEW pair of pajamas. All sizes accepted, donations can be dropped off between 9am - 7pm daily. Click here for more information.
In 2013, Rescue Outreach Mission of Central FL received a $700,000 grant in federal dollars to expand our shelter to house more families in Central Florida. The expansion includes the addition of rooms in our Women and Children’s dorms to accommodate 10 more beds, the addition of a much needed administration office and an overall update to the interior and exterior of the facilities.
McCormick Foundation Fund
In January, when the Orlando Magic Youth Fund, a McCormick Foundation Fund (OMYF-MFF), handed out $600,000 in grant money to 25 local nonprofit organizations, Powell once again got to see firsthand the Magic’s willingness to give back and make a difference in the community. We received a $15,000 grant, and Executive Director Powell found it somewhat surreal how his ties to the Magic had intertwined.
