To provide leadership and collectively advocate for the alleviation of homelessness in Central Florida by identifying needs, developing resources, and coordinating services.
Incorporated in 1993 to coordinate the scarce resources available to assist people experiencing homelessness, the Homeless Services Network has undertaken the development of a Continuum of Care for Central Florida since 1995. Recognized by both the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development and the Florida Department of Children & Family Services as the coordinating agency for homeless services, the Homeless Services Network became a regional body in 2000 with the addition of Seminole and Osceola Counties. The Homeless Services Network's Continuum of Care process has been successful in bringing more than $20 million in federal funding from HUD's Supportive Housing Program to Central Florida since 1995.

I was involved with the Stand Down for homeless Veterans this past Saturday, 9/27/2008 in Orlando. It was a wonderful and rewarding experience to take part in this project to help the homeless Veterans in Central Florida. I will definitely volunteer in future events.
Great Job, everyone!
