Be A Part Of The Homelessness Solution
A historic effort is underway across the Central Florida community. New commitments are being made to support and empower the homeless in our region. These amazing promises are becoming even bigger results, with more homeless individuals and families moving off the streets and into their own homes. The time is now for everyone who cares about this issue to join our groundbreaking movement to eradicate homelessness in Central Florida.
We have come together to change hearts and minds, now we must continue the journey to change the lives of the homeless.
The Central Florida Commission on Homelessness (CFCH) has found tremendous success shining a spotlight on the issue of homelessness. Our Rethink Homelessness campaign is the most successful nonprofit social media advocacy campaign in Central Florida history, currently engaging over 34,000 followers on Facebook daily. In addition, one video from the campaign, Cardboard Stories, has been viewed worldwide, with over 6 million hits on YouTube.
The fact is this fight is far from over. Now is the time to push this effort even further. Along with our dedicated partners in the Central Florida community, CFCH has been able to identify real solutions that will win the war to eradicate homelessness. What is needed are more resources to enable these solutions to be successfully implemented on the largest scale possible. Over the next year, we need philanthropists, corporate leaders and everyone in between to make pledges of financial support that will help more people leave the streets and find a home.
We have challenged Central Florida to see the homeless just as they see their family, friends and neighbors. To see them for who they are, real people. People deserving of respect and in need of support. So we ask one simple question – what are YOU doing this year to change the lives of the homeless?
Your investment in the Central Florida Commission on Homelessness is an investment in our community. By giving a gift today, you will ensure a safe future for individuals and families without homes, as we work together to provide overarching solutions such as permanent supportive housing and rapid rehousing. Your investment is leveraged by others in the community as resources are combined, processes are streamlined, and tax dollars are saved through long-term solutions rather than short-term fixes.
As a donor, you will make a significant difference in partnering with us to reach thousands of homeless individuals and families who are not sheltered or precariously housed. Your investment will continue to increase awareness of the issue of homelessness and provide long lasting systemic change to reach the goal of ending homelessness by making it rare, brief and one time.
Give the gift of home.
Thousands of our neighbors in Central Florida live without a permanent home. They dwell under bridges and on park benches, in run-down motel rooms and the family car. Change is never easy, but with the voices, time, and resources of our community, 2015 will be the year when Central Florida proves that we can RETHINK HOMELESSNESS. Whether you give $5 or $500, your tax-deductible gift to Rethink Homelessness is making a difference in the lives of the homeless. Thank you for your support.
