On any given night in Lee County, there are an estimated 2,800 persons without a place to call home. “Many of the community’s homeless blend right in,” said Janet Bartos, executive director of the Lee County Homeless Coalition. “They are the families who foreclosed on their home after losing their jobs, the kids your child sits next to in school and the veterans returning from war.”
The Lee County Homeless Coalition is a non-profit organization comprised of community and faith-based service providers, local businesses, people who are currently experiencing or who have experienced homelessness, and other advocates committed to ending homelessness. The Coalition’s mission is to advocate, educate and promote awareness of issues and obstacles facing homeless individuals in Lee County through community collaboration, planning, and implementing solutions.
