DeSoto Cares is Making a Difference

DeSoto Cares Homeless Services is a non-profit organization committed to addressing the basic needs of the homeless population in DeSoto County, Florida. Our service center, located in Arcadia, offers showers, laundry, mailboxes, internet connection, case management, and referral services to those in need. Our mission is to transition individuals out of homelessness and address the systemic causes of homelessness in our community.

A New Solution to a Long-standing Problem

With 160 square feet per house, each one will be fully furnished and built on a wooded property in Arcadia that was donated to our organization.

Collaborating with Key Partners

Currently, we are completing wetland flagging and property surveying, laying the foundation for the next phase of the project.

Clearing the Way for a Better Future

We have taken great care to plan the project properly, including surveying and marking the wetlands. This required clearing the encampment, but it's the only way we can move forward and make the project a reality.

Building a Strong Community for Those in Need

While the development of Tiny Town is a major accomplishment, it is just the beginning. We need the support of our community, including volunteers and funds, to make this project a success.
