Mission Statement

Our Mission is to help all in need  to the best of our ability. We follow the parable of the Good Samaritan, as there are no requirements for our services. And we know our program is second to none , as we constantly reinvent the wheel to make it all work. The faces of homelessness can change as well as each individual’s circumstances. And there have been very few that we have not been able to helafter our founder became homeless himself , and found that traditional shelters were not working , or addressing the needs of Veterans.  Veterans fought for the rights of all , including themselves. The Founder feels that no one should lose those rights by becoming homeless. The shelters he stayed in, and visited, force the residents to church , hard labor , and many other things that do not make them productive or a part of society when they leave. That is why our Veterans Shelter is helping Veterans. We operate on love and a family atmosphere.    Veterans, and many others who are homeless are helped , in the rural areas of Florida , regardless of their beliefs or unique situations. Many Veterans have given up trusting in our society, and have little access to shelter and services in rural settings. Our program is designed for those who are far from less than perfect and know it , but want and need helhealth, outreach, spiritual, and social services, we seek to empower homeless people of all ages to meet their own needs. Recognizing the uniqueness, dignity, and value of each person, we accept individuals as they are, in an affirming and compassionate manner, and call upon the larger community to the same mission. The Mission provides basic and self-care supplies, free health care, housing and supportive services for the homeless that are the hardest to reach, referrals to other resources and more.   The Mission in Citrus Inc operates five shelters located in Crystal River, Floral City ,Hernando, and Inverness Florida… Our Mission is to help all in need regardless of their faith or lack of.  While we encourage, teach and preach the Gospel, we force it upon no one.  It is not a requirement for any of our services. The Mission is a 501(c)3 Public Charity and all donations are tax deductible.  Over $.95 cents of every dollar goes directly to goods and services for homeless residents. The core of the Mission is :

The Mission was founded after extensive research, and living and working at other shelters.He took what did not work and asked God to help him develop shelters that would.It has been a rough road and we are always works in progress. The Mission is well on it's way to being the top shelter system in the State. We feel our Director has been through it all ,and we are happy that he will lead us back into society as productive citizens..That's why we call him " Papa Bear".

Leadership Statement:

We are happy to announce the opening of the Homeless Brigade. The Mission in Citrus opened the new Veterans only, shelter in March 2010. The 25 bed shelter will allow us to better serve, those who served us. The shelter is a miracle in itself , as it was opened on less than $ 5000.. The Mission continues to move forward in faith , as we look for our fourth shelter. The Mission operates the largest shelter system outside Orlando or Tampa.

Impact Summary from the Nonprofit Additional Information
A Charting Impact Report consists of an organization’s responses to the five questions. Helping validate this self-reported data are three reviews. Once an organization has used the online interface to complete its report, its responses will produce a document with a unique URL that will be shared on this website, on your GuideStar profile, on the reports of charities participating in BBB Wise Giving Alliance evaluations, and – in the future – with other websites and information sources about nonprofits. We encourage organizations to use this URL to share their report on their own website and through their own media channels. Participants will receive guidance about promoting their Charting Impact Report, along with other benefits, once they publish their report.

The Mission Homeless Shelters are run by formerly and presently homeless staff. The Mission is proud of their 90% success rate. During 2013 - 14 We have so far : Served 68,000 meals Provided over 20,000 bed nights Delivered over 5000 meals , bikes,tents,sleeping bags,lanterns and much more to our homeless Veteran's in the woods Our Mountain Bike patrols through Operation Mercy Call have reached those who have never been reached before.We ride through the woods and swamps in several counties.Unfortunately a dead body was found on our rounds.At least we were able to see him get a proper burial. Thanks to a grant from Winn Dixie, we now have a jeep to get further into the woods to deliver food ,tents, sleeping bags, medical supplies and more to our Veterans, men, women and children.
