STRAIGHT STREET ORLANDO INC
September 21, 2012

This group is absolutely amazing. And trust me I am not blowing smoke here. This organization steps out and helps those on the street and changes the lives of its volunteers. Straight Street Orlando is a God given gift to the city of Orlando and I am so grateful to be able to be a part of it. So many people are willing to give the shirts off their backs, or anything that they can just to help our friends who are living on the street. And its not just every once in a while, its every week. There is so much love for everyone involved that to be part of this organization is to be part of a real family - Gods family. Theres no better place to be. :)

STRAIGHT STREET ORLANDO INC
July 14, 2011

Someone once asked me why I got out and volunteer with Straight Street Orlando on a weekly basis, and I stopped and said the first thing that came to mind, which was that there was nothing better that I could be doing on a Tuesday night. And I still stand by that. I have been serving food and volunteering at events for the homeless in downtown Orlando since before Straight Street even existed. And I will stand by Straight Street, because of the amazing organization it is, til the day, heaven forbid, it or I no longer exist. We go out and help these people, not the drunk bad people that most people assume that the homeless are, but the good people who just need help, the people who are just like you and me that may not have been as lucky or had as many breaks as you or I have. We help them in every way we possibly can. We watch these people grow and become stronger and we happily watch them leave cause we know that they have successfully found a way off the street. We give them food, we give them clothes, we wash the clothes they already have, but most of all we give them love, hope, and faith that they can make it through the rough times and that things will get better. And truthfully compared to volunteering with a group that is capable of all that, I am not sure anyone could be doing anything any better on a Tuesday night.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

I have watched my friends on the street, with the help of contacts and our resources, not only get jobs, but also get places to live and move on with their lives, and be much better off.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

If I had to make any change to this organization i would find a way to increase our funding, because this organization has such potential to grow and stem and become even more than it is, but without adequate funding it will never have the chance.
