Our doors are open Mon, Tues, Thurs, & Fri 8:30am to 3pm
The phones are answered from 9am to 3pm on Mon, Tues, Thurs, & Fri

Our food pantry usually has frozen meat, fresh produce, non-perishable food and juice.  We help with your needs on an emergency basis and monthly thereafter.


We have good used clothing and shoes, and new socks and underwear at the Daystar Life Center.  We may pay for work boots if required by your job.  You may also receive a voucher to shop at no cost at the Daystar Thrift Shoppe for work clothing, business suits, backpacks, and more.


If you are setting up a new home, the Daystar Thrift Shoppe has kitchen utensils, dinnerware, sheets, towels, and furniture at low prices or free to eligible clients.

We can help with a portion of your overdue rent and utilities.  The amount of help we can offer depends on the funds available at any time.


If you don’t have your birth certificate we can help you apply for a copy from any state.  We'll also help you obtain a Florida ID (but not a driver's license unless required by your job).  The Florida License on Wheels van comes to Daystar on a regular basis to make it very convenient to get your ID.  Call to find out the next date the FLOW van will be here.  With an ID you can then cash a check, access a shelter, receive other social services, and apply for a job or an apartment.


We have bus passes and gas vouchers to get you to and from a doctor's appointment, a job interview, and sometimes for the first week of a new job.  Daystar partners with Greyhound to reunite clients with family or close friends who live out of the area.  If a bicycle is your means of transportation, we usually have bike locks and lights.


If you have a prescription that you can't afford to fill, or need the co-pay so you can visit a doctor, we may be able to help.

We have individual and family sizes of soap, shampoo, deodorant, toothbrushes and toothpaste, combs and brushes, razors and blades, and laundry detergent.  Infant and adult diapers, first aid supplies, and feminine care products are also available.  We can usually supply new socks and underwear.


Clients who are homeless, in transitional housing, or fear mail theft can use Daystar’s address to receive their mail.  We keep it safe until you pick it up.

We have computers and phones in our client resource room so you can apply online for a job, call your case worker, listen to your voice messages, or keep in touch with family.
