Rescue Outreach Mission exists to serve disadvantaged people throughout Central Florida,
by providing resources that help prevent homelessness and by helping those who are
already homeless return to self-sufficiency.
Be a part of our Thanksgiving food drive!
For over 27 years the Rescue Outreach Mission of Central Florida has shared Thanksgiving with the families in need. Through the generous support of donations and volunteers, our community partners make it possible to distribute food boxes to approximately 100 families in need during the Thanksgiving season.
In 2013, Rescue Outreach Mission of Central FL received a $700,000 grant in federal dollars to expand our shelter to house more families in Central Florida. The expansion includes the addition of rooms in our Women and Children’s dorms to accommodate 10 more beds, the addition of a much needed administration office and an overall update to the interior and exterior of the facilities.
McCormick Foundation Fund
In January, when the Orlando Magic Youth Fund, a McCormick Foundation Fund (OMYF-MFF), handed out $600,000 in grant money to 25 local nonprofit organizations, Powell once again got to see firsthand the Magic’s willingness to give back and make a difference in the community. We received a $15,000 grant, and Executive Director Powell found it somewhat surreal how his ties to the Magic had intertwined.
