“Do not be hardhearted or tightfisted toward your poor neighbor. Rather be openhanded and freely lend him whatever he needs.”  –Moses, Deuteronomy 15:7-8


Our flagship program, Family & Emergency Services (FES) provides immediate emergency assistance and relief to families and individuals who are faced with an unexpected financial crisis*. Assistance available only to residents of Orange County, Florida. The primary goal of FES is to help families maintain their residence and prevent them from being forced into homelessness.


At the onset of an emergency, FES is available to offer direct, immediate assistance in the form of food, clothing, rent/mortgage assistance, utility assistance or other services that meet immediate, pressing needs. FES works with individuals in a comfortable case-by-case basis to help develop a sustainable action plan aimed at improving the long-term situation of families and individuals.


FES operates out of all three Christian Service Center locations in Downtown Orlando, West Orange (Ocoee) and Winter Park. Visit our Contact Us pages for location addresses and hours.
