Individuals, Families, and Youth
If you are struggling to find assistance, click below to access a variety of support services based on your community.
At our last Point-in-Time (PIT) Count conducted in January 2018, we counted 2,053 INDIVIDUALS who were literally homeless or were precariously-housed in Central Florida (Orange, Osceola, and Seminole counties). Although this number is just a snapshot and varies as people come and go, it still speaks volumes to the work our community has to do.
During the 2017-2018 school year 9,758 SCHOOL CHILDREN were experiencing literal homelessness or were precariously-housed. This directly impacts families and illustrates the significant need to support stable housing for all families.
The first-ever Tri-County Youth Count conducted in October 2017 in Orange, Osceola and Seminole Counties found 268 unaccompanied YOUTH ages 13-24 on a single night who were experiencing literal homelessness or were unstably-housed. This number, on a single night, represents a significant challenge for our community, and we must work together to provide a coordinated system of care for our region’s most vulnerable young people.
