2014 was a tremendous year for the Central Florida Commission on Homelessness. In keeping with our mission to identify long-term sustainable solutions for those who are homeless in Central Florida, we are bringing the community together and finding resources for addressing homelessness in Orange, Osceola, and Seminole counties. Thousand of viewers followed our advocacy campaign, “Rethink Homelessness,” on social media, local television, and billboards located throughout the community. Meanwhile, “Cardboard Stories,” our video that chronicled the stories of the homeless the street of Orlando, went viral with more than 5 million views from around the world.
