A Celebration of People Lifting People,
Transforming Our City.

Watch the impact from our Inaugural Event



Orlando Serve Foundation presents “He Got Up”, a day of celebration and service for the homeless, families, and individuals in need.  Several events have been planned, all of which will feature:

  • Compassionate Restorative Justice
  • Know Your Rights and Responsibilities Semniars
  • Help with driver’s license and court cost issues
  • Government leaders, agencies, non‐profit organizations, businesses, faith based organizations, and community volunteers will work together to provide a cohesive aide for those in need
  • Food, drinks and family activities provided

It’s important to note that Orlando Serve is not creating another program.  It utilizes existing programs and services from public and private sectors, and leverages resources to achieve a sustainable, holistic solution.

 

Orlando Serve Foundation does not discriminate based on race, religion, color, sex, national origin, age, citizenship, marital status, mental or physical ability, or sexual orientation.


Collaborative partnerships across Central Florida area will be strengthen as members from various entities are exposed to other resources within our communities. This will facilitate connections with one another, cross‐pollinate services, and leverage their resources.  Together, this public/private partnership will consist of a large community of individuals, corporations, and organizations uniting resources and building a model for other communities to follow.  Our strategic plan is well under way to ensure the success of this model.


To Help Individuals and Families Become Self-­Sustainable

Homeless rates are growing at an alarming rate in Central Florida, putting a strain on individuals, families, and government/community resources.  According to a 2013 federal study, Central Florida has been ranked number one for chronic homelessness of individuals, including veterans.  In addition, there is a large population that live in local motels, the woods, cars, and other undesirable locations.  However, we are an innovative and creative community that will accomplish the seemingly impossible.  We will make an impactful change with a cohesive collaboration through this effort that addresses many of their needs in focused locations throughout the community.



Government Leaders, Agencies, Businesses, Non-Profit Organizations, Faith Based Organizations, School Districts, Community Volunteers.

To make this successful, a unified effort is needed in three areas:

  1. Funding: Engage non‐profits, corporations, and individuals to meet the budgetary needs.
  2. In Kind Services/Donations: Specific in kind needs are being identified and a list is under construction.
  3. Volunteers: Opportunities to assist on the initial event day and beyond include:
    • Set Up
    • Registration
    • Screening
    • Question & Answer Desk
    • Ambassadors
      1. Ushers for Legal Know Your Rights Seminar
      2. Guide Guests through Venue
      3. Runners
    • Food Servers
    • Cook Helpers
    • Supervise/Staff Family Fun/Play Area
    • Face Painter
    • Blow Up Balloons/Balloon Art
    • Games for Children

He Got Up 2018 will look different this year as we continue to work diligently to serve the citizens of our communities with Compassionate Restorative Justice. We will host several smaller and more focused events throughout the year. The main concentration of these events will be Legal Services, where we have the greatest response. Registration for help with driver’s license and court cost issues will be provided at every event.

First set of court dates for 2018 have already been planned:

Orange County:
1) Friday, 5/11
2) Friday, 5/25

 

Osceola County: TBD

The opportunity to provide these transformative services would not be possible without the unprecedented support of Chief Judge Lauten, who has once again agreed to provide access to the court systems. This is extraordinary and we are incredibly grateful for this opportunity.

There were several others major collaborators in these efforts including; Tiffany Moore Russell, Orange County Clerk of Court, Armando Ramirez Osceola County Clerk of Court, Robert Wesley, Public Defender, and State Attorney, Aramis D. Ayala. We would like to extend our deepest gratitude to all involved in making this happen.
