   Helping Families Help Themselves

Our Mission

The mission of Florida Resurrection House, Inc. is to provide a community, faith-based, transitional housing and self-sufficiency program for motivated families with minor children who are homeless or at risk of being homeless.

In pursuit of our mission, Resurrection House will bring about results in these four areas:

  • We will equip participants with
    the skills to lead stable, self-sufficient lives
    including offering services intended to end the cycle of poverty
    for participating minor children.

  • We will assist participants
    physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually.

  • We will help participants become
    tax-paying, contributing members of the community

    that has supported them.

  • We will accomplish our mission with
    no government funding.

Perhaps I will stay with you awhile, or even spend the winter, so that you can help me on my journey, wherever I go.

1 Corinthians 16:6

Resurrection House is a program to change lives, not just a place to live.

Families know they are safe and secure in our beautiful, furnished 2- and 3-bedroom apartments. Since 1987, more than 500 families have completed our intensive, long-term program. Most of these families work and attend school, graduating from Resurrection House into solid careers, into permanent housing, and into bright futures for their children and themselves.

A typical participant is one of our moms who came into our program with a 3-month old daughter and no formal education. Since entering Resurrection House, she has become a Licensed Practical Nurse and continues at St. Petersburg College to become a Registered Nurse. At the same time, she volunteers, publishes a participant newsletter, and is very active in her faith life. Another participant has paid off all debt, completed Pinellas Technical Education Center as a Licensed Pharmacy Technician, works in a major hospital, and continues her education at St. Petersburg College. She came to us broke and living in her parents home in a very negative environment. Our program works!


Success means
permanent, positive change,
not a quick fix.
