Volunteers - With over 180+ active volunteers, Resurrection House loses its fair share to the northeast and midwest over the summer.  Needed are individuals to work a four hour shift in the morning or afternoon - Monday through Friday.
Background Statement
In 1985, a group of parishioners were attending an evening meeting at the Church of the Redeemer.  The sprinkler system came on and out of the bushes came Joy. She was soaking wet and was homeless.  She was taken inside, dried off, given something to eat and put in a motel for the night.  Having a homeless woman living on the grounds sparked a discussion.  In 1989, six downtown Sarasota churches initiated Resurrection House.  In 22 years, we have given help to almost 29,000 homeless individuals.  Since our beginning, we have never asked nor taken a penny from the city, county, state or federal govenment.

While our primary mission is to serve the homeless in Sarasota County, no individual is turned away because of geographic boundaries.  If individuals and /or families need to be reunited with others in a different state and their lifestyle would be enhanced, we provide the bus tickets to make that a reality.

Statement from the Board Chair/Board President
Resurrection House is a well-established service in downtown Sarasota for the neediest of the needy. It is a cooperative effort among the churches, both funding and volunteers coming from congregations throughout the city.  Local businesses and foundations also support the ministry.  Our broad base of support is a big success, as well as the fact that we do not accept any funding from the city, county, state and/or federal government.
Resurrection House is a very well-run organization that stretches every dollar donated.  The people of Sarasota are compassionate and we have over 200+ volunteers who carry out the ministry day after day.  One of our greatest success is our ability to operate with the donations given, even during the most difficult of economic times.  It is also one of our greatest ongoing challenges.
Our greatest success, however, is any individual or family that receives our help to become self-supporting, and returns to society to contribute to the common good.  It is that help that restores self-respect and dignity, as well as purpose in life.  This is why I have been involved at Resurrection House since 1995 and why I continue to be involved.
Statement from the CEO/Executive Director
There is an ancient proverb that states, "No one knows what one can do until they try".  I believe this statement is fitting in describing the work of Resurrection House. 
Over twenty years ago something miraculous happened when the doors of Resurrection House opened to serve individuals and families who are homeless in our region.  Today, that miracle persists as we continue to serve an ever increasing number of people on a daily basis. 
Thie is not easy work for our volunteers and staff.  Our clients face difficlult circumstances and most have serious problems.   At times, it is difficult to see the results of our efforts and it would be easy to give up.  However, something keeps all these dedicated people involved with Resurrection House coming back to serve week after week and year after year.
And, I think I know why.  It is because miracles happen at Resurrection House.  Lives are restored and people are given a sense of hope and support found in few other places (in few other worlds).
None of this would have been possible then and it would not be possible today without the continued support received from our community.   I wish to express my heartfelt appreciation for all those who continue to serve and support the important and vital work accomplished at Resurrection House.
Working in conjunction with the Senior Friendship Center, Resurrection House provides a doctor and nurse to examine and treat the homeless clients.  A room exists at Resurrection House for a medical clinic.  The operating expense to furnish the clinic with medical supplies and pay for prescriptions rests entirely with Resurrection House.  Currently, a doctor see clients on a twice a week schedule, each Tuesday and Friday  morning.

Short Term Success
A short-term success would be immediate treatment for an ailment suffered by a homeless client.  The vast majority of health problems can be treated on site.  For a more serious problem, the client is immediately referred to another facility or emergency treatment.
Long Term Success
In 2015, with two days a week covered by medical personnel, over 2,000 client visits were registered in the medical clinic.  Without the clinic, the emergency rooms at the regional hospitals would have been more crowded than ever.
Program Success Monitoring
The successful treatment of a client is monitored by the trained medical staff.  A follow-up appointment to check on the medical progress is maintained.
Program Success Examples
The improved healthy condition of clients is the success that follows medical treatment.  There is a look of great relief on the faces of the clients knowing they can be treated at Resurrection House rather than going to a regional hospital.

Since Resurrection House was designed to not duplicate existing services available to the homeless, it acts as a referral center to other local agencies that have programs to assist the homeless.  A collaborative effort between Resurrection House, the Sarasota Police Department, YMCA Schoolhouse Link REACH Program, and Coastal Behavioral Healthcare allows for case managers to interact with our homeless and assist them to get the guidance and help they so desperately need.
