The Challenge

The cost of housing is increasing faster than the the income of the population. In Duval County alone, one would have to work 60 hours a week on minimum wage to afford a studio apartment, not including the cost of childcare, transportation or unexpected life events.

The Solution

With your support, we provide access to initiatives for people in an immediate crisis, legal and emotional support for a medical crisis or domestic violence, and health screenings and assistance for persons with disabilities and senior citizens.
