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.
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.
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.
