Caring for the Homeless Men,
Women and Children of
West Orange County
Matthew 25:35-40 NIV
For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in, I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me.'
"Then the righteous will answer him, 'Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you something to drink? When did we see you a stranger and invite you in, or needing clothes and clothe you? When did we see you sick or in prison and go to visit you?'
"The King will reply, 'I tell you the truth, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers of mine, you did for me.'

Christmas Carnival with Santa

We will host a free event for homeless families with SantaBaby1children living in West Orange County. This includes families living in motels, vehicles, doubled up with other families or in the woods.

On Saturday, December 13, we’ll host carnival games, prizes, hot dogs and hamburgers, cotton candy and popcorn.

And if children worry that Santa won’t be able to find them in the woods or in their car, they can visit with and get their picture taken with him in our Winter Wonderland.



How You Can Help

Rally your church, business or school to host a booth at the carnival. We need final commitments before November 24.

We’ve posted some ideas for booths and games you might offer, including a link to a place where you can purchase inexpensive prizes for participants. We are unable to provide materials for your booth—just the children.

The carnival lasts 1:30 – 3:30 p.m.

Registered guests of Matthew’s Hope can qualify for assistance with gifts. The sooner they register, and the more often they check in and work at Matthew’s Hope, the more assistance they will receive.


Matthew’s Hope, based in Winter Garden, is a fully Independent 501(c)3 Non-Profit Homeless Outreach. The Local Community including over 50 Churches, Civic Organizations, and area Businesses in partnership with one another provides 100% of our funding and support. It all began with a "Freeze Warning" Shelter offering the homeless a place to escape the cold when temperatures dropped to dangerous lows. This Outreach has now expanded to offer many services to the Homeless Men, Women & Children of West Orange County. These services include everything from Showers, Haircuts and Laundry, to Medical, Dental, Optical and Mental Health Care assistance. The Volunteers of Matthew’s Hope help connect our structurally challenged friends with various resources and services, such as Food Stamps, Florida ID’s, Birth Certificates, Social Security and VA Benefits. Matthew's Hope also provides Clothing, Shoes, Tents, Sleeping Bags, Bikes, Hygiene Products, Emergency Shelter, Groceries and much more. Donations may be dropped off every Tuesday & Thursday or by appointment by calling 407.905.9500. Thank you for partnering with us in offering a hand up to the "Least of These".
