The Samaritan Resource Center breaking the cycle of homelessness and poverty in OrlandoBill “Roto” Reuter has been living on Orlando’s east side for 11 years, and with each passing year has gotten to know the community more and more. The Samaritan Resource Center was established by a coalition of several churches in East Orlando that work in conjunction with many social service agencies throughout Orange County. They exist to break the cycle of homelessness and poverty by meeting the physical and spiritual of those who are homeless or are at risk of homelessness.

Their work quickly caught Roto’s attention because a good portion of those folks served are fellow vets.

“When I learned about SRC and what they were doing, as well as what they were trying to accomplish, I felt a pull to join them in this journey and do what I could to help our community put a stop to homelessness,” Roto said. “Since 2010, SRC has helped more than 1500 clients, which sounds like a lot because it is, but there are so many more that we need to help!”

Thanks to Megan Stokes at Insight Magazine for taking the time to learn more about SRC and sharing an article with her readers so they can learn more about SRC and how they can help.
