Operation Mercy Call
The Mission in Citrus Inc was founded in 2008, after 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, and our other three shelters for the homeless are all working.
The Mission in Citrus Homeless Shelters are located in Crystal River, Hernando, Floral City, 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.
Opened a Veterans Shelter on less than $ 5000
