The Source is a 5,000 sq. ft. Christian Ministry/outreach facility open seven days a week, addressing the complex needs of the poor and homeless in Indian River County. Their purpose is to offer life-changing possibilities to residents in crisis; offering emergency hunger relief, clothing, counseling, support groups, hygiene items, showers, mail and telephone services, benefit referrals, cold weather refuge, and more.
The Source believes that food is a tool to strengthen bodies physically and spiritually, empower minds, build communities. The Source feeds hundreds of poverty stricken residents free of charge every day, three meals a day through their Dining with Dignity program.
Over 100 people attended the complimentary five-hour annual “Thanksgiving Day Celebration at the Source” Tuesday, November 24. Many in attendance also left with free turkeys (donated by local firefighters and businesses) as well as ready-made dinners to bring to other friends and family in critical need of a hot meal.
