Osceola County community leaders gathered to advocate for a one-stop shop homeless facility on Monday and address the lack of shelters in the county.
- Osceola leaders push for one-stop homeless facility
- Facility would provide resource to county's homeless
- Rep. Darren Soto, Comm. Peggy Choudhry show support
Officials believe people in need are often sent to neighboring Orange County for assistance and that it shouldn't be that way.
This one-stop shop would provide resources to the homeless to help them get back on their feet.
Non-profits in the area are pushing for the facility, as well as Rep. Darren Soto, D-Kissimmee.
"The hope is when families here in Osceola County face crisis that they'll have a place to go and have a helping hand lift them up," Soto said.
Commissioner Peggy Choudhry will be presenting a motion to the Osceola County Commission next week on Monday.
