The Christian Service Center for Central Florida seeks to mobilize our community under one common vision: to eradicate homelessness and poverty through the provision of services and resources that foster hope, well-being and empowerment. For over 50 years, the Center has provided aid for our hurting neighbors with various programs designed to meet their physical, emotional and spiritual needs, regardless of race, religion, age or gender.


Hundreds of thousands of people have been served from the Center’s three locations in Downtown Orlando, West Orange County, and Winter Park. Through three core programs, we fulfill this vision and accomplish our mission of preventing homelessness, combating poverty and cultivating self-sufficiency.


Since 1975, the Daily Bread program has been serving a free, nourishing, noontime meal for families and individuals in the community six days a week for the most at risk population and help struggling people get needed referrals to other programs and partner agencies. In May of 2022, Daily Bread reached a major milestone serving its 5,000,000th meal!


Our Family & Emergency Services (FES) program provides housing services for a limited number of unsheltered families and individuals, as well as immediate, short-term crisis assistance to families and individuals facing an unexpected financial crisis. Help may come in the form of food, clothing, financial rent or utility assistance, or other services to prevent them from becoming homeless.

Since 2020, the Christian Service Center has evolved to become the Orlando area's Comprehensive Day Services Center, serving as a single location for all the assistance a person experiencing homelessness needs. Our goal as a Comprehensive Day Services Center is to get our clients healthy, hired, and housed. We have made great progress in our housing initiatives over the past two years by expanding our case management team and adapting to a difficult housing situation in Central Florida. Presented with the rising cost of rent in Central Florida, lack of affordable housing, and high inflation for essential items such as food, our case managers have worked with landlords and created new processes to facilitate us providing financial assistance and housing to as many of our struggling neighbors as possible.
