Okaloosa Walton Homeless Continuum of Care Opportunity, Inc.
November 30, 2011

I joined the Okaloosa/Walton Continuum of Care for the Homeless over 2 years ago as a result of my desire to implement a soup kitchen in our church. Because of their tremendous support and guidance our church, Christ the King Episcopal Church in Santa Rosa Beach, FL, is now up and running at full speed with the lastest number of meals served being 108. I have been so impressed by the leadership and organizations included in the Continuum. So much so that I agreed to join the board over one year ago and thus have become more and more involved in their successful efforts to aid families and veterans that have been sorely impacted by our declining economy. It is an organization that helps those in trouble, but more importantly helps them to become self-sufficient and productive members of society. I think the single most important accomplishment is the establishment of a 10 unit transitional housing complex for struggling families with children. The success rate has been phenomenal and the many families that have benefitted from this endeavor are forever grateful. I am proud to be a part of such a fabulous organization. Sincerely, Ann Wallace
