Affordable Housing

Home and apartment rents in Metro Orlando have increased in the last year and will likely continue to rise. This has become a serious problem for many in our area who are already struggling financially. The church office is frequently receiving calls from those looking for a room/in-law suite to rent from a Christian individual/family.

If you have a room or apartment available to rent (or know of someone who does), please share your information with the church office. We will be glad to pass it along to someone in need of affordable housing.
