Opportunities of Hope

In today’s economic climate, homelessness has become more frequent and of longer duration. There are more than 4,000 homeless persons in Orange, Osceola and Seminole Counties in any given night. The recession has added new faces to homelessness – with families with minor children increasingly losing their housing. As the only organization of its kind within 25 miles, Rescue Outreach Mission of Central Florida serves a wide geographic area with many needs, pulling residents from primarily Seminole County but also a portion from Orange County. The longer a family or person remains homeless, the more dysfunctional they tend to become. Without the benefit of Rescue Outreach Mission's “Opportunities & Hope” program, many families and/or individuals risk becoming chronically homeless. This creates an even larger burden to society.

Rescue Outreach Mission of Central Florida’s “Opportunities & Hope” program currently has two facilities.

Men
Our Men’s shelter is a 48 bed facility that houses men needing emergency shelter or a transitional place to stay. Residents stay in the Men’s shelter for as little as one night or for several months depending on their situation.

Women and Children
Our Woman and Children’s facility is currently being expanded from 36 to 46 beds. Mom’s with kids stay in a private room with their children and we can accommodate for up to 4 children in a room. There is a dormitory style room for individual woman, some needing shelter from domestic violence.

As part of their case management, residents work toward personal goals, including employment, a crucial step to becoming more financially stable and independent so they can move into permanent housing. Without our services, they will be less likely to achieve the life and job readiness skills they need to obtain and sustain employment, or to achieve permanent housing, and would require more services from the community; impacting the availability of services from government, private agencies, and the religious community. Rescue Outreach Mission’s “Opportunities & Hope” program ensures a safer, healthier community for all in addition to providing the potential for a future for our clients.

The Following are specific services that every resident benefits from (some services are provided in collaboration with other agencies).

  • In-Take and Case Management Plan
    During in-take, each client is interviewed to determine the cause of his/her homelessness. ROM assesses the individual's goals, job skills, education level, health, substance abuse and disability issues (if any), and other factors that contribute to their employment potential. Each case is reviewed weekly to determine progress toward planned goals.
  • Assistance in applying for all government programs that are available to assist residents such as Section 8 Housing, Medicaid, food stamps, TANF, SSI, and Veterans Health Services.
  • Three meals a day, seven days a week for all residents.
  • Clothes closet, mental health counseling, and access to AA/NA meetings, if needed.
  • Education (one-on-one and group) in learning financial literacy skills that will increase financial stability, such as budgeting, mock employment interviews, assistance in filling out job applications.
  • Transportation to job fairs.
  • Assistance in finding permanent housing.
