Taking the “Soup” out of Soup Kitchen

The Source has a program called “Dining with Dignity.” This is the first restaurant style dining atmosphere for those in need in our community and on the east coast of Florida.

The Source to Open Doors Overnight for Refuge From the Cold

As the weather begins to cool down in Vero Beach over the late fall and winter months, The Source, a homeless center in Vero Beach, opens their doors to those who need to find refuge from the cold and into a safe and warm facility for the night.

Generally, when the temps descend to under 60 degrees, the facility, located at 1015 Commerce Avenue in Vero Beach (located behind Staples on US 1) will open. Guests should plan to arrive and register between 9:30 p.m. and 10:00 p.m. No arrivals after 11:00 p.m. will be accepted. However, due to the Covid Restrictions and social distancing, The Source will only be able to provide beds for up to 15 people. This is on a first come, first serve basis. A meal will be served.

For those in the community who wish to offer aide, donations would be sincerely appreciated. In addition to monetary donations, the facility is currently in need of blankets, jackets, pillows, and sweaters.

For further information on the cold weather shelter operations, call Tony at The Source, (717) 435-2312.

The Source offers life-changing possibilities to residents in crisis; offer emergency hunger relief, clothing, counseling, support groups, hygiene items, showers, mail and telephone services, benefit referrals, cold weather refuge, and much more. As first responders, The Source helps provide critical care for physical, spiritual, civic, and social needs.

Celebrity Kathie Lee Gifford Honors The Source

All of us know celebrity Kathie Lee Gifford, television host, singer, songwriter, actress and author.

Many of us know Philanthropist George Shinn, a long-time supporter of The Source, who was a Vero Beach resident and the former owner of the NBA Charlotte Hornets, as well as minor league baseball and semi-professional football teams.

And in our own backyard of Vero Beach is Anthony “Tony” Zorbaugh, the Executive Director of The Source, a local non-profit that provides critical care for physical, spiritual, civic and social need for the poor and the homeless. Under Zorbaugh’s leadership, he and his team offer an unlimited and untiring belief in helping others improve the quality of their lives.

These three different people from different lives and lifestyles are drawn together with the same belief; that is…a belief in faith has no boundaries. This faith is what helps them lead each day to make a difference for others; helping to provide basic needs, answering calls for help in times of crisis and offering love…all in whatever way it unfolds for each of them.  Most of the time, they don’t know who they are wishing this for, but in the end, this is how these three people live their lives. And, it’s what makes them complete.

When Shinn turned to his friend Kathie Lee to share his impressions of The Source, she quickly endorsed Zorbaugh’s efforts for The Source, jumping on board with support for both the organization and its leadership. Her offer was to produce a video-taped message that will be used widely by The Source to help spread the word of what is being done to help others.

“Thank you Tony for what you are doing to help feed people, cloth them, hold them and love them,” Gifford states in her video message.

Shinn operates the George Shinn Foundation dedicated to helping people in need by furthering the work of churches, ministries, missionaries and non-profit organizations. “It’s my way to extend our resources to help others,” Shin expresses.

“I adhere to three intrinsic principals, “Zorbaugh shares. “Food is a tool to empower minds, build communities and strengthen the body and soul; to offer the right tools and support to bring about positive change; and to present real solutions for long-term sustainability. Combine this with my faith in God and it has a trickle down affect for everyone who walks through our front door.”

“Tony you are doing a great job for the homeless,” Gifford concludes. “And I know that the Lord knows the good you are doing as his faithful loyal servant.”
