Word on the Street Homeless Ministries mission is to meet the physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual needs of the

homeless wherever they are found, to the Glory of God.

- Pastor Skip


Our mission is to follow the words of Matthew 25:34​

I was hungry and you fed me,
I was thirsty and you gave me a drink,
I was homeless and you gave me a room,
I was shivering and you gave me clothes,
I was sick and you stopped to visit,
I was in prison and you came to me.’

Assemble Bags

Provide Food

Pick Up & Distribute

Every week Pastor Skip assembles more than 500 snack bags to hand out to the homeless throughout Central Florida. The reality is WOTS needs four times that amount! We have a central location with all the supplies needed to pack these bags; now we just need some helping hands who can commit to assembling them on a weekly basis. This would take a few hours a week, but you don't have to do it alone. Volunteering together as a family or small group would make this easy work!  If you are interested in getting involved and making a real impact for the homeless, please sign up today!

WOTS has a Bible study and feast every Sunday at 4:00pm EST on East Colonial Drive. We are looking for friends who can sign up for one Sunday every month to cook and bring an entree, meat, salad, or dessert. For example, you might choose to bring an entree on the second Sunday of every month. We plan to expand the Sunday feast as soon as we have enough "cooks in the kitchen". In addition to the east side of town, we will launch a Sunday Feast at 4pm on the west, south and north sides, and downtown Orlando.

Generous companies like Pizza Hut, 7/11, KFC, Chipotle, Long John Silvers, and Publix (to name a few) donate food to WOTS on a daily basis. We need volunteers who are willing to pick up and deliver these food items to distribution points. Please sign up if you are interested and we will contact you to discuss details and make arrangements.  Pick up times vary from 7am to 10pm.
