The picture above is our new jeep , which will allow us to reach deeper into the woods and swamps in Citrus County Florida. Our focus is on our Veterans, but we help all in need. With food,tents,sleeping bags,medical supplies, and to make sure they know about the benefits that they are entitled to. VA , local resources , and other information will be provided. It is time for all to stop talking the talk and walk the walk towards helping our Veterans..We are very happy that Florida is stepping up to make using veterans , women and children to scam money from people. Our policy is all open door. Thank you all and God bless.
The Mission in Citrus is dedicated to helping Veterans , men
,women, and children off the streets and out of the woods, into a productive environment where they can change their circumstances and once again become productive members of society. The Mission was operated by the homeless for the homeless with no paid staff since 2008.At this time, the Mission has received funding which allowed for the hiring of part time staff. We rely solely on donations from those with caring hearts and grants when awarded.. Our shelters are open at anytime for visitors, and we are dedicated to transparency as any non profit should. We help Veterans from around the US , as many wish to relocate to Florida.
Welcome Visitors.. Please forgive the simplicity of our site and take the time to explore our site..If you made it here. God inspired it. We do our site ourselves, as we value every penny we get from our donors, and can not afford professionals.. We operate the largest shelter system in Citrus County , Florida and are working to expand our system, as it is working on much less than the cost of other shelters in all states.The shelters were run solely by the homeless with no paid staff until 2014. My vision was that the homeless could help themselves when given the proper resources.They have made me very proud.To the right is a picture of Winn Dixie Executives and managers giving the Mission in Citrus a
$ 25,000 Check to help the many Veterans , men, women and children in the woods. Our hats are off to them for making it all happen.
We are truly faith based as God runs things around here. Though religion is forced upon no one. It is time America takes care of their own. We operate as a family at our shelters.
