About the Clara White Mission:

Located in the highly populated veteran city of Jacksonville, Florida, the Clara White Mission Veteran Program has been designated for delivery of food and goods  because of their overall program success. 

This Mission provides a clean, welcoming place for Veterans in-need to live while working toward permanent and independent living with 24 months.  Residents are required to be employed and/or currently enrolled in school; participate in case-management and life-skill classes; complete health and mental health assessment and counseling; maintain required sobriety; and participate in substance abuse education classes and support. 

This Mission’s very successful transitional housing and Drop-In Day Center are facilities focused on providing resources to assist homeless, low-income veterans in-need.  As veterans graduate, the Mission assists them with some basic housekeeping furnishings for their new independent living residence so the need for furnishings is an ongoing cycle for new veterans entering the programs.  Their Boulevard House is a women veteran’s facility and the Ashley Street facility has a large portion dedicated to men veterans.

What is needed:
