If you lost your home, your job or your health, what would you do?

There are thousands of people in Jacksonville who have no one to turn to, no one who is able to help them when a crisis occurs in their lives. They are the reason we are here. Every day, Sulzbacher Center is home to more than 340 homeless members of our community, many of whom are children. But we offer more than a night’s lodging and a hot meal. We are a place for reinventing lives and for restoring hope. We help people in need find the way home.

Here are just a few of the services we offer:

• Safe Shelter - over 360 beds, filled every night
•Case management - one-on-one support for every resident
• Street outreach
• Medical, dental and behavioral health care – 2,000 patients, cared for every month
• Nutritious daily meals - 1,600 meals, served every day
• Job placement assistance and life skills education
• Specialized children’s services
