Every human being needs a home, but many here in Paradise struggle to maintain one.

With the rising costs of housing, healthcare, (cost of) food, and childcare along with many other basic living expenses, many in the Florida Keys find themselves not even living paycheck-to-paycheck.

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.

As you learn more about our services, programs, and successes, we hope you will join FKOC in our mission to end homelessness in the Florida Keys.

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.
