New Homeless Shelter In Key West [EXCLUSIVE]

On any given day in Monroe County, there are men, women, and children who are homeless, living and sleeping in the street, the mangroves, vehicles, derelict vessels, or other inappropriate and dangerous places. Most of them lack not only housing but also social services to assist with adequate nutrition, medical attention, and personal hygiene facilities.

Sadly, there are many more who live in constant risk of hunger and homelessness. They know that even one missed day of work, an unexpected accident or illness, or unplanned expense can cause them to become homeless.

Fortunately, there is help. The Florida Keys Outreach Coalition offers both hope and solutions. Incorporated with non-profit status in 1992, FKOC provides homeless prevention and shelter with essential supportive services throughout Monroe County, Florida.

FKOC offers solution-oriented services that prevent homelessness from occurring with quick interventions that stop the tumble into homelessness. When homelessness has already occurred, FKOC offers effective multi-stage housing programs that encourage self-sufficiency, stability, and opportunity.

The Mission of the Florida Keys Outreach Coalition Inc. 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.

Many shelters also provide services such as alcohol and drug rehab treatment along with clinics, and best of all supportive housing options. I try to provide as much information as possible on my details pages.

In these tough times, shelters are needing your donation help more than ever. Contact the shelters at the phone numbers provided to donate your items. Most shelters also are always looking for volunteers. Look to your homeless shelters for volunteer opportunities. I list addresses, phone numbers, websites and shelter comments on my shelter details pages. Please help and get involved.

In April, a Los Angeles Superior Court judge blocked the city of Norwalk from enforcing its temporary ban on motels and hotels renting out space to homeless people without prior city approval. The council in August approved another law requiring cooperation from the state, Los Angeles County or any other agency over the same issue.

In 2017, the city counted 317 homeless individuals on the streets of Norwalk as part of the Los Angeles County Homeless Service Authority official count. Since then, that number has decreased reaching a low of 168 at the beginning of this year.

The 136-room shelter will be smaller than many other Phoenix shelters. According to CASS, fixed incomes and rising costs of living have put the senior population at severe risk of becoming homeless throughout the nearly two-year-long pandemic.

Please note that sheltering options may include Florida International University, the E. Darwin Fuchs Pavilion at the Miami-Dade County Fair and Exposition (which allows pets), and other facilities within Miami-Dade County, based on their availability on a per storm basis. Information will be made available via Monroe County official alerts, Monroe County Website Press Releases, social media sites, MCTV Channel 76 & 99, and by local media and other local official government agencies.

Having a safe, alternative to shelter is often a much better way of resolving your housing crisis. Provider staff may try to help you maintain your current housing (if you have any) and resolve conflicts that are keeping you from staying there. They may negotiate with a friend or family to extend your housing and may be able to assist you with rent or utilities.

Assessing permanent housing needs/preferences. In addition to determining whether you need shelter, this assessment will explore what other housing needs and preferences you have. This process may happen in stages with different providers based on your needs, but is meant to help you move as quickly as possible from your current situation back into your own home.

Help for those living outside. Unfortunately, a lot of communities in the U.S. have many people sleeping outside (including for long periods of time) and do not have enough shelter or housing to move everyone back into housing quickly. These communities need to prioritize resources for those who need them the most.
