The Mission In Citrus reaches it's eight year anniversary of helping homeless Veterans,by celebrating a 96% success rate.
The Mission in Citrus has been helping Veterans since 2008. They were rewarded by having all their Government funding slashed. After the Mission In Citrus reached it's eight year anniversary of helping homeless Veterans,by celebrating a 96% success rate. They are reaching out to get public support in order to keep putting Veterans into homes.
It has been a long and rugged road, but the homeless proved that they could help each other since 2008. They have helped pioneer many new methods that are working.The numbers in rural America continue to increase.The Mission in Citrus has helped lead the way in innovative projects that work to reduce the numbers.They have just reached a 73% employment rate , which is unheard of for shelters in the US. After deducting children in the women's house, the rate is 90%. They have reason to be proud.
Some think that the Founder of the Mission in Citrus is going to the extreme. Maybe.But something unusual , and out of the box has to happen to wake up Washington pretty soon. Our Veterans are remaining homeless and in need. Their voice needs to be heard and acted upon. They served their country with honor. And homelessness is not an acceptable reward for any Veteran. America must make Congress do what is acceptable and good for those who protect us each day.Support Rolling Thunder on May 29th.
The Mission in Citrus would like to thank Winn Dixie Supermarkets, and the Southeastern Grocers Association for reaching out to help so many in need. Their help has allowed them to help those in the woods and swamps of rural Florida. Getting them into shelters for further help, and to supply food to thousands. They hope that many other Corporations will follow their lead.
The Mission in Citrus thanks Walmart as they approach their seventh year anniversary. The Mission in Citrus just awarded Larry Gamble and his family, Inverness Florida Walmart and their associates, a 2015 bronze plaque for their continued help and support of homeless veterans, men, women, and children. And to many in need in Citrus County Florida.
After five years, and a lot of hard work, the Mission in Citrus Veteran's Shelter is getting a total remodel and doubling in size. Homeless Veterans are getting even more help, that is on it's way.. They have proven that HUD-VASH Vouchers work through a unorthodox approach. Make It happen. Don't give up.. Veterans from around the United States come to the Mission to get jobs and get back on their feet.
Since 2008, when 6 homeless guys set down and made the rules and procedures for a one of a kind shelter, thousands have been helped and ended up as one of the most highly successful shelters in the Country. All done using less dollars and more sense.
