Mission:
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 help. Our program has no paid staff. It is for the homeless to help the homeless. They offer each other a hand up, and not a hand out.
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.
Results:
Went from 60 tents to five shelters
Opened a Veterans Shelter on less than $ 5000

The Executive Director goes above and beyond when it comes to the residents. We work on establishing resident needs... more »

I am just a willing vessel for the Lord. I have found over the years that Pastor Jim has a heart of gold. He goes endless days and nights without rest just to be sure the needs of people in this community are met. He fights for a good cause and pushes people to be their best.
