My Favorite Charities 2018: Coalition for the Homeless of Central Florida

Happy New Year! Here’s my last Favorite Charity post of the year. I hope your new year is filled with all the adventure, love, and success you want.

Living in a city for the first time has made me more aware of how many people sleep rough every night. Every night I see dozens of people sleeping on the steps outside businesses, tucked into closed businesses, and in the parks in my area. There’s also been an increase in hostile architecture since we moved to Orlando, which only serves to ‘move along’ the homeless population, rather than solve the problems that cause homelessness in the first place.

The Coalition for the Homeless of Central Florida is working to help people who are homeless by providing shelter, training, daycare, laundry, and all kinds of essential services. It’s a massive, sprawling organization that covers as much ground as they can with the resources they have.

If this is your thing, here’s their donation page with donation and volunteer options.
