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 social services, adequate nutrition, medical attention, and personal hygiene facilities. They are individuals and families at risk.
Fortunately, there is help.
The Florida Keys Outreach Coalition offers hope and solutions. Incorporated with non-profit status in 1992. FKOC provides homeless outreach and shelter with essential supportive services in Monroe County, Florida.
FKOC offers a solution-oriented, multi-stage program based on self-sufficiency, stability, and opportunity.
