New Directions Community Outreach, Inc. (NDCO) is a non-profit association founded in 2004 by Debra Thomas as a feeding program for the homeless. Since the naissance, NDCO has pledged to do everything possible to help those who are disadvantaged and in need. In the pursuit to change lives, we have found that our biggest war is against homelessness and hunger. We attempt to combat the affects of these degradations to improve the lives of the underprivileged populace and make our neighborhood a better place.
Not only does our organization provide services and programs for food and financial assistance, but NDCO works hard to produce events that enrich the lives of the indigent, beyond simply the bare necessities. With events such as our 2nd Annual Easter Egg Hunt and Celebrations we are able to give children the opportunity to experience the joy of the holiday. We also hold home buyers seminars, like our "Get on the Bus into a New Home", aimed at helping people obtain permanent residence for the first time.
NDCO works hard to equip individuals and families with the proper resources and tools for survival and a chance at a better life, such as educational programs and financial assistance. We also endeavor to develop community services to raise awareness, offer outreach programs and aid in the prevention of homelessness. It is our ultimate goal to help the impoverished peoples of our society become self-sufficient, made manifest on the smiling faces of those who benefit from our cause.
Mission: To prevent and reduce the growing rate of homelessness in Central Florida by equipping individuals and families with the proper tools to become self-sufficient through housing, outreach, awareness and educational programs.
