Homeless Impact Funds

Homeless Impact Fund

The Homeless Impact Fund has worked collectively with public and private partners to build a system to reduce homelessness in Central Florida. Thanks to a $6 million investment from AdventHealth, over 339 of the most vulnerable citizens have found housing, healthcare, and mental health services, along with more than 70 families that have received employment assistance to help sustain their housing. Even with all this monumental progress, there is still much to do to continue towards the goal of making homelessness rare, brief and one-time.

  • Gifts to the Homeless Impact Fund support the system that moves individuals into housing
  • Philanthropic contributions cover costs that local jurisdictions are not able to - it keeps the system moving forward and cohesive
  • Contributions are tax deductible

Join the community by investing in the Homeless Impact Fund to continue our shared work of scaling the region’s focus on a housing-first strategy.

The Homeless Impact Endowment Fund secures the Housing First model in the community to ensure it continues to scale and meet the needs of all our neighbors experiencing homelessness, to create a community where everyone feels at home.
