The Samaritan Resource Center (SRC) along with its partner organizations including Orange County and several churches in East Orlando, work in conjunction with many social service agencies throughout Orange County to break the cycle of homelessness and poverty, by meeting the physical and spiritual needs of those in East Orange County who are homeless or who are at risk of homelessness. We are striving to make homelessness in Central Florida rare, brief, and one-time.
The Samaritan Resource Center was incorporated in 2013 as a 501(c)3 nonprofit and formed through a partnership with several churches in East Orlando. Participating churches, includes but not limited to, Grace Journey, Orlando Wesleyan, Spirit of Joy Lutheran, University Presbyterian, and Woodbury Presbyterian. We are always looking for more partnerships with churches who can align with our Christian Mission Statement.
Since we began operating at our Colonial Drive center in 2013 we have helped 2,000 homeless individuals by providing assistance through applying for food stamps, SSI/SSD, Assurance phones; through partnerships with Goodwill’s Job Connection Center, and with Lakeside Behavioral Center/Aspire; and through offering haircuts, clothing, prayer, and much more!
