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.
Join hundreds of runners at our Rescue Run Corporate 5K is one of the biggest 5K’s runs in Seminole County. Teams from various Central Florida corporations compete for overall scores in Top 3 Overall Females and Males, age groups (incl. kids) and Top 3 Fastest CEO’s. After the run, enjoy music, food and refreshments along with festival style vendors at Oval Park, located on International Parkway in Lake Mary.
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.
