Heart for Homeless in Clay County Florida is a non profit organization that helps homeless people in Clay and Duval Counties in Florida. They provide support in the form of food, clothing, tents, and other supplies to make it a little easier for them.
Steve White is the gentleman who started this organization. It began during Lent in April of 2009, when Steve and his wife Angela chose to help the homeless as their mission. Here’s an article from jacksonville.com that talks about how Steve started his mission work.
I have to admit that there have been times, I’ve seen homeless people and just don’t consider them to be like me. You think they are a criminal and you’re worried they might try to hurt you. That’s not always true, not true at all. Many are just like you an me, but something happened in their life to cause them to be on the streets. Yep, sometimes that event was their own fault, sometimes the decisions they made, were not the right ones. Some, had a house and a job and just didn’t save for the future. How many people live paycheck to paycheck, with no savings at all?
One of the things I read, that Steve said that once he started talking to these people, they became his best friends. He goes there to give them food, clothing and sometimes, just some company.
