A Hand Up... Not A Handout

Childhood only comes once, and no child should spend any of it caught up in family homelessness. Family Renew Community brings together religious congregations, businesses, civic and charitable organizations and individuals committed to solving homelessness in Volusia County. The program provides housing and helps homeless parents on a path toward supporting their families in places of their own.

A Hand Up

Success Stories

Family Renew Community served 65 families, including 128 children, in 2017. One was a couple with six children, from a toddler to a 12-year-old, who were thrust into homelessness by Hurricane Irma.
- Thanks for all you do!
Thanks to Family Renew Community supporters like you, the journey out of homelessness ended successfully in 2017 for 39 Volusia County families, including 78 children.
- Your help is the key!
Of the 42 families who moved out of their apartments at Family Renew Community's residential campuses last year, 81 percent moved into permanent housing. One single mom bought a house for herself and her three kids!
- Thanks for your support!
Hundreds more homeless families are out there in Volusia County, ready for a hand up, not a handout.

Kimberly Bandorf connects families with money for rent and utilities so they don’t lose their housing. More important, she’s passionate about preparing them to be OK when that short-term assistance runs out.
