Open 7 Days a Week

Thanks to the City of Vero Beach and the current owners of the establishment, the popular Dignity Food Truck, owned and operated by The Source in Vero Beach, is parking their Food Truck in the parking lot behind Seaside Grill for the next several months, offering a menu of food and drink that will fill the gap in time until the restaurant re-opens.

A few of our members and staff celebrated the holidays by visiting Universal Studios in Orlando. What a great way to ring in the New Year! Thank you for your generous contributions that make a trip such as this possible.

We have had the pleasure of witnessing Olguy grow over the last 5 years. We have been dedicated to supporting him on his journey to a life of stability and self-sufficiency. Olguy has stayed committed, trusted the process, and graduated from the Dining with Dignity Culinary Training Program and moved into the Dignity Jobs Program. He now serves diligently, as our Laundry Attendant and we could not be prouder. The Olguy who showed up on our doorsteps 7 years ago, who was scared, alone, and didn’t speak a word is not the same person who is now running our Laundry Facilities. Being a part of our programs has boosted his self-confidence, his communication skills, and gave him a family to belong to.

Members of The Source do varied jobs for building and ground maintenance, and in turn earn them “Source Bucks”. Once accumulated, the “Source Bucks” can be handed in towards the purchase of a variety of needs. Recently, many of the members have been purchasing new bicycles for their transportation by earning enough of the “Source Bucks” to pay for them.

Dignity Smiles provides free dental restoration to eligible Dining with Dignity graduates. Proper dentistry makes a difference with their confidence and employability. The Source partners with Dr. Sadesh Kumar, founder of Wickham Dental Care in Melbourne, FL, along with other dental partners across Florida.

Meet Chriss Hunter, he recently joined the Dining with Dignity Culinary Training Program to pursue employment and other resources to get his life back on track. As a student here, he received case management assistance that helped him research and obtain the required documents to get his Florida ID like his birth certificate. We provided Chris transportation to the DMV, walked in with him, and supported him throughout the process from start to finish. This is one barrier removed that brings Chriss closer to his goals. We are happy to be able to celebrate Chriss’s accomplishments in the program so far, like getting his ID today and looking forward to him graduating and moving into employment soon. Congratulations Chriss!

Student Testimonials

Meet Antonio

Antonio went from a happy childhood to a rocky period in his life when he fathered a child with a girlfriend, dropped out of school to support them, getting involved with the wrong crowd that led him to using drugs and becoming homeless. Once he discovered The Source, he began training as a student in the Dignity Foods program, cooking on the Dignity Food Truck and obtaining skills necessary for finding a job. He has now reunited with his Alabama family and has obtained a job as a manager at a local food chain!

Meet Krystal

With her mother on drugs and her dad deceased, Krystal grew up in foster care and after high school, Krystal gave birth to a daughter, now seven. She never stopped dreaming of becoming educated and bettering herself, thus moved to Orlando to attend college and obtain a job to support them both. When COVID forced her to lose it all and became homeless, she found The Source. Following her tenure in the Dining with Dignity program and working on the food truck, The Source guided her to a qualified job that has enabled her to work full time, find a home and enjoy her new car gifted from a Source benefactor!

Meet Olguy

Olguy hails from Haiti and speaks limited English. Like many other homeless, unfortunate circumstances and the inability to live with family, drove Olguy to the streets until he discovered The Source. He enrolled in the Dining with Dignity program and worked on the Food Truck obtaining the skills to cook, bake and operate a kitchen. As a recent graduate of the program, The Source was able to assist him in finding a job at a local restaurant right here in Vero Beach. The Source has made him not only feel at home with support from everyone around him, he has learned skills that will take him far in the food industry!
