I'm a veteran who because of health issues an not being able to work, ended up lose house . Family Endeavors got in touch with this shelter to lend a hand. The Veterans Shelter Has provided a clean safe place . the staff are very involve with helping those of us here, to find work,schooling,getting to VA clinics. They'er involved in other missions in citrus, an helping other that have become homeless. We get involved to.It's wonderful to be around so many, putting there time to help us all.

I thank god for this place that gives us hope and opportunity in our lives
Mission in Citrus is very helpful. They provided me a bicycle to help me find a job. They also help to encourage me to save money and get back on my feet again. Everyone there is very kind and understanding of everyone's individual situation and specific needs.
Becoming homeless has taught me to become a very humble person. Therefore, since I have been here, not only do I do my chores, but if someone can't do theirs, for one reason or another, I go ahead and do the chore for them, anyways. You need to have teamwork and cooperation with everyone in the house, to get things done. I look forward to the day when I can give back as much as I can to the mission, cause the mission has done so much for me. I roof over my head, a bed to sleep in, food in my stomach, and hopefully a direction to go, to improve my life for the better. I thank all the staff here for helping me in everyway they can and I can't wait to male them all proud of me when I do finally get back onto my feet. Thank You from the bottom of my heart.
This is a great place to live . they help you you out with anything I need to get back on my feet jim the big guy is very understanding of everyones situations and he works with us. the donations we receive here got me clothes and keeps me fed when I have no money to buy them. the guys at the house are cool we have our moments but at the end this place became my home and I enjoy living here because I have a family that actually cares for me.
this a great place they gave me a place to stay when all my friends wasn't there when I needed them the most, but this place was. Everybody here are great people (staff) they treat like they really care. this place is really helping me get refocused on my life. Im blessed and grateful to be here and around those who help those in need.
