Connecting Everyone with Second Chances

As a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, our goal is to provide a comprehensive approach to ensuring homelessness is rare, brief, and non-recurring in the Tallahassee area. We execute this mission through a variety of projects – each with their own intention and purpose.


The Kearney Center provides emergency and immediate services to those experiencing homelessness. From free shelter to an onsite clinic, this state-of-the-art facility is the first step in helping stabilize someone who is experiencing homelessness. Support services such as GED classes, prayer groups, and workforce training are also available at this facility via partnering agencies.

Westgate is a low-cost, low-barrier housing solution for individuals who have previously experienced or are on-the-verge of experiencing homelessness. This program offers a variety of housing options and scalable payments to fit an individual’s specific need and circumstance.

The Dwellings is the nation’s first tiny home community working to help end homelessness. Constructed to accommodate low-to-moderate-income individuals, this community provides impeccable and beautifully crafted tiny homes with amenities including a garden, dining hall and walking trails to assist residents through their journey of independence while capitalizing on the natural beauty of the grounds.
