The mission of the Samaritan Resource Center is to break the cycle of homelessness and poverty by meeting the physical and spiritual needs of the homeless and other at-risk folks in East Orange County as a witness to the love of Jesus Christ.
The SRC was formed through a partnership with several churches in East Orlando — including, but not limited to, Grace Journey, Orlando Wesleyan, Spirit of Joy Lutheran, University Presbyterian, and Woodbury Presbyterian. We are always looking for more partnerships with churches who can align with our Christian Mission Statement.
Since we began operating at our Colonial Drive center in 2013 we have helped over 2500 clients through applying for food stamps, SSI/SSD, Assurance phones; through partnerships with Goodwill's Job Connection Center, with Orange Blossom Family Clinic, and with Lakeside Behavioral Center/Aspire; and through offering haircuts, clothing, prayer, and much more!
The SRC is here for any question. We are here for a hand up, not a hand out. We are an official ACCESS FLORIDA Site.
