WHO WE ARE
CRN is a coordinated and collaborative network of community organizations, non-profit providers, agencies, as well as individuals and members of the faith communities in Central Florida, addressing family homelessness in our tri-county area by offering a community system of support through shared resources and relational support for families who are not eligible for government funded housing programs or support services available to families experiencing literal homelessness.
The network supports the region’s programs of response to housing instability, working alongside organizations such as the Central Florida Commission on Homelessness and Homeless Services Network, and complementing the work of local governments and nonprofit agencies.
When we combine forces and work together, we can multiply our efforts by identifying and sharing the unique resources each organization, individual, group and congregation has within the network. Through the network, we can coordinate the creation of holistic support plans for families, meeting concrete needs, building relationships and offering community connection, to help families achieve their goal of self-sufficiency.
CRN equips and empowers individuals, community organizations and the faith communities to walk alongside families who desire to come out of homelessness. We equip our community and faith partners with the knowledge and tools to provide support to families that meets the families' tangible and relational needs, using resources available within the faith communities, nonprofit providers, local government and social service organizations.
Collaboratively with our partners, we empower and guide families by motivating and encouraging the restoration of positive relationships and supportive networks to bring about transformative change. We facilitate community connection, and provide the opportunity for personal development, and a path to improve the quality of life.
