HELP THE CHILDREN
Clarita's House Outreach Ministry is a non-profit program for the homeless and disadvantaged. We are a Christ centered program based on biblical principles.
Clarita's House Outreach Ministry started as a result of Doreen & Aldwin serving the homeless after Sunday service at New Destiny Christian Center. The need to serve the homeless and less fortunate grew and they started serving the homeless at a storefront church in Orlando on Monday evenings. While one team was serving up the spiritual food another team prepared and served the physical food. They served a home cooked meals every Mondays along with clothing, blankets, hygiene supplies, bicycles, sleeping bags and all other necessities. This feeding later moved to the sidewalks of the coalition for the homeless and there they served the homeless for several years until moving it to the streets of Kissimmee.
In Kissimmee they say the need to serve the many families living in motels and in homeless camps. Our outreach team serves the homeless & disadvantaged on the streets, in shelters, in the woods, cars and motels. We continue to serve Orange County but in Osceola County, we are putting most of our emphasis on the children living in motels and shelters. We provide groceries, clothing, personal care items, school supplies, toys, spiritual support, mentoring and other resources to these families with children. There are over 2,500 registered homeless children just in Osceola County alone. Most of these children live in rent-by-the-week or by the month motels along U.S. Highway 192, minutes away from Disney World. Most are doubled up with friends and relatives and some are living in cars and travel trailers. Our long term goal is to have transitional housing accommodation and resources for these families with small children. We depend solely on donation assistance from individuals, churches, businesses and grants to operate our programs.
Jesus said..... "For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in. "I tell you the truth, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers of mine, you did for me." Matt: 5:35,40
With the help of individuals, businesses, churches and grants, we can continue to feed the hungry, cloth the naked and give hope to the hopeless.
Our Mission is to help the homeless and disadvantaged achieve self-sufficiency and inspire them to reconnect with society in a productive way.
Our Vision is to provide food, clothing and other resources needed for the homeless individuals and low-income individuals and families to become independent and productive members of our community. We serve the communities in Osceola and Orange County of Central Florida.
We are committed to serving God and the needs of the homeless and disadvantaged in our community. The face of homelessness is diverse. It includes mothers, fathers, sons, daughters, and racial and ethnic minorities. Florida has the third-largest homeless population in the United States at 27,487. There are 12,672 individuals who are unsheltered. These individuals experiencing homelessness include 19% of individuals with chronic disabling conditions, 17% of these individuals are children under the age of 18, the Veterans make up about 9% and youth between the age pf 18-24 make up 6%. The Florida Department of Education reported that as of September 2020 there were 79,949 homeless children attending public schools.
