STEPS OF ACTION / PREFERRED ORGANIZATIONS

These are a few organizations that we have experience working with that we believe may be of the best use to you in getting a “hand up”, NOT always another “hand out”!

Set Free by the Sea – Men’s discipleship program. Phase 1 is 5 months. May require persistence to get in. No narcotic medications or phones allowed during phase 1. Your job is to get equipped with the word of God. (904)849-1091. There is a program for Women in Wyoming, bus tickets may be available for willing people.

Quest – Quest is a good place to start for housing. They do intake / evaluations for many housing programs. They also provide mail services for homeless, as well as help getting ID’s and food stamps. 904-358-2411

I.M. Sulzbacher Center - 611 E Adams St. This shelter seems to offer the most services. There are medical and dental services on site, housing for men, women and families and also case management. 904-359-0457

Awakenings House (Women’s) – Awakenings is a women’s halfway/sober living house and discipleship program that is pretty flexible – (904)710-3844
