Mission in Citrus Inc - Veterans Shelter
306 South Park Ave
Inverness, FL - 34452
When beds are available, we provide emergency housing for veterans for up to three days. Laundry, mail, and personal items such as shampoo, soaps, and more are also provided. We set up many social events, including fishing, bowling, and other activities to help with the transition back into the community.
This transition can be harder for some than others. We offer spiritual help through the church and give a bible to all of our residents. We also offer counseling and family counseling within our veteran housing. This helps them to get back in touch with their relatives and loved ones. Programs such as counseling offers veterans assistance with their emotional problems. Many are angry and greatly benefit from our anger management courses which are available locally or online.
Established in 2008, Mission in Citrus Inc. has been helping homeless veterans from all over the United States. The servicemen and women of Florida, need our help, and we are dedicated to serving them as they have served us. We are also committed to providing our donors and supporters with transparency. Our administrative costs are low because we believe that your donations should go directly towards helping these veterans.
We have a 20 bed shelter in Inverness Fl, and a 10 bed Veterans shelter in Crystal River, Fl.
