Marion County Homeless Council
Ocala, FL 34478
UPDATE THIS LISTING
The Marion County Homeless Council is the Lead Agency for the Continuum of Care (CoC) in Marion County, and is mandated to provide collaborative community leadership resulting in innovative solutions to reduce homelessness and maximize local mainstream resources to meet the needs of the homeless population and the precariously housed residents throughout the County.
The MCHC provides direct financial assistance through various Prevention Programs. Demographic and socio-economic profiles are often strong predictors of patterns of homelessness. Many families/individuals are literally one pay check away from becoming homeless. Other crippling calamities such as extensive medical expenses, reduced hours of employment, or rental evictions due to landlord foreclosures, add to the challenges and problems in acquiring or maintaining affordable housing.
The Marion County Homeless Council will seek new and innovative approaches to provide for the sustainability and expansion of current facilities and the addition of new facilities to house the homeless.
