Come Back Stronger

Through partnership with caring people and businesses, First Coast Community Development is a program developed to help end homelessness. With programs set in place to help our neighbors struggling to find work or a place to live, we provide services to help with drug abuse, access to jobs, and meals.

With locations in multiple cities in north-east Florida, and expanding, we are looking to make a restoring hope, dignity, and self sustainability to these local communities and in the lives of those in need of real solutions.

Comeback Centers Helping to End Homelessness

Comeback Centers

We are setting up communities to foster dignified help for homeless veterans all over the south-east though supportive partnerships.

Redeveloping properties like these to become homes and supportive communities for veterans struggling to find their way back into civilian life is the primary calling of First Coast Community Development.

Within these communities, First Coast provides ways to help those who have served our country find ways to achieve their dreams and goals.

Our Mission

The Mission of First Coast Community Development is to be the “First” to stand by homeless Veterans and at-risk women, men, and children.

Like a “Coast” we’ll meet them where they are to assist in bringing solutions to combat physical, technical, and mental health challenges; lack of housing, and other determinants of well-being.

We’ll work as a “Community” to assist with the “Development“ of restoring hope, dignity, education, empowerment, and self-sustainability while adding value to their communities.
