He Got Up - Central Florida
Orlando Serve Foundation’s “He Got Up” event is an ongoing public/private collaboration to leverage existing resources to assist families and individuals in need or homeless with a path to self-sustainability. In 2016 and 2017, over 5,000 volunteers connected with individuals in need with non-profit and government programs and services through an innovative resource fair.
In 2018 and 2019, the collaboration continued as we narrowed our focus throughout the central Florida community. Through our partnerships with many compassionate and generous individuals and corporate, private, civic and religious organizations, our impact reached thousands of individuals in the greater Orange, Osceola and Seminole county area. Many of these individuals are experiencing hope, freedom and opportunity not available to them in many years!
The combined total of recovered court costs, fees and fines (both in payments and community service hours) exceeds $2 million in fees and community service hours served.
Our fifth year of service was deeply impacted by the global COVID-19 pandemic. We had plans to expand into new territory and explore new opportunities to serve the community. Given our in-person community event service model, we were able to host only one of our five planned events during 2020, but we have been busy behind the scenes working diligently with our partners and allies, and forming new relationships that will enable us to provide additional service options in the future.
