Orlando, FL Homeless Information Forum

Welcome to our Orlando, FL information forum. I have added some questions for you and posted them below.

The goal is to compile as much local information as possible for those who are homeless and need food or homeless resource assistance in Orlando.

If you are familiar with Orlando and the homeless situation, please answer the questions below as fully as possible. Let's build a useful resource section that only you and those intimately familiar with Orlando will know.
