Mission Statement

Dave's House mission is to transform lives and give hope to people with serious mental illness through creating stable homes that provide lasting recovery. Our Vision is to end the housing crisis for people with serious mental illness


Dave's House is Central Florida's leading provider of affordable permanent support housing for individuals with serious mental illness (SMI) and co-occurring disabilities. Dave's House and Aspire Health work together to help these individuals continue to live in recovery through affordable permanent supportive housing, which is our Dave's House homes. Residents receive ongoing mental health care, life skills development training, access to community resources, and 24/7 crisis intervention and stabilization services if needed. Many of Dave's House residents move on to independent living.

Lin and Ron Wilensky founded Dave's House in 2008 after personally witnessing the positive impact permanent supportive housing made for Lin's brother, Dave Jefferys, who lived with schizophrenia. Dave's House has developed nine single site homes in Orlando and Ft. Lauderdale, Florida and Fairfax, Virginia, as well as multiple Dave's Housing First homes, providing permanent supportive housing for over 100 individuals who are living productive lives in an atmosphere of mental wellness, safety and stability.

Our work focuses on the power of people helping people. Our principles are based on the value of people, relationships and innovation. Each home is a product of community cooperation, individual compassion and a commitment to make an enduring difference in the lives of others.
