Upper Keys Development & Implementation of Services
The Florida Keys Outreach Coalition’s mission is to provide homeless individuals and families with the resources and opportunities by which to attain residential, financial and personal stability and self-sufficiency. The FKOC further seeks to address the underlying causes of homelessness and work toward its elimination in Monroe County, Florida. FKOC has traditionally operated emergency and transitional homeless shelters as well as a food pantry in Key West, Florida and is now expanding services to the Upper Keys. A VISTA in this position will help ensure that those living in poverty and struggling to meet their basic needs throughout the Florida Keys receive services that will assist them out of poverty, provide housing stabilization, increase access to housing, increase access to food and other essential services not currently readily available through the capacity building of the Florida Keys Outreach Coalition.
