Rethink Homelessness “coordinates non-profits, faith-based institutions, philanthropic initiatives, private sector businesses, and other charitable and community organizations to impact homelessness in the Orange, Osceola, and Seminole county area.”

The Commission serves as a hub of information and initiatives, directing resources along appropriate local avenues.

In 2014, the Commission released a groundbreaking report entitled The Cost of Long-Term Homelessness in Central Florida, calculating the “true expense” for each chronically homeless individual in the community to be roughly $31,000 a year. In contrast, the research conducted by a top national homeless expert concludes that “providing the chronically homeless with permanent housing and case managers to supervise them would run about $10,000 per person per year” (Orlando Sentinel).

These findings solidified the Commission’s goal of battling all types of homelessness (with a new emphasis on chronic homelessness) through the creation of permanent housing solutions that include healthcare and social services.

    I would love to see bungalower or OS detail more of these housing plans.  I think many folks will wonder if lessons were actually learned from the failures of prior housing projects.
