Welcome to the Homeless Family Center of Vero Beach
Twenty-two Years of Serving the Homeless
The Homeless Family Center provides Emergency and Transitional Shelter for Homeless Families from Indian River, St. Lucie, Martin, and Okeechobee Counties. Our 4th Street facility can accommodate seven families in the Emergency Shelter and twelve families in the Transitional Shelter which translates into a total of 72 individuals that we may house on any given day. In addition, three stand-alone homes are occupied by families who have transitioned from the Center to greater self-sufficiency.
We are more than just a roof overhead as we partner with a dedicated group of individuals to provide services for our clients such as children's programs, employment training, and mental health referrals.
Our Mission is to provide opportunities for homeless families to end homelessness by achieving self-sufficiency through education, living wages, and permanent housing.
