Florida Lifestyle Realty has been supporting Housing for Homeless since 2018 where we have agreed that for every home sold with us, we will donate a portion to the organization.
Housing for Homeless is permanent supportive housing targeted to individuals and families with chronic illnesses, disabilities, mental health issues, or substance use disorders who have experienced long-term or repeated homelessness. The goals are to help people obtain housing quickly, increase self-sufficiency, and remain housed.
They also aid homeless veterans by providing supportive housing and intense case management services for those that were referred to Housing for Homeless by Veterans Affairs (VA) and other agencies.
This past July, I met with Steve Kelly, the Housing for Homeless Veterans Program Director, in Titusville at their facility where he shared how much they do to support the veterans. It was great to learn about the different programs they offer based on their situation.m ...

If you haven’t heard about the big news that is happening in Central and Southern Florida, you’re about to find out!
Projected to be in full service at the beginning of 2022, Virgin Trains USA- formerly known as Brightline- will complete its tracks between Orlando and West Palm Beach. The long term goal will be to link Miami, Fort Lauderdale and West Palm Beach to Orlando International Airport. With constant travel between Miami and Orlando, this makes total sense. It also allows for people to take a break from driving and focusing on the road to enjoy time with family and friends during their travel!
Last month, (September 2020), Virgin Trains broke ground on the Orlando to West Palm Beach leg of the higher speed rail service. This is a huge opportunity for Central and Southern Florida! Not only is it creating a huge commuter railway for locals and tourists, but it will generate more jobs!
From what we are hearing, tickets can cost as low as $100 from Orland ...

Hurricane season officially kicked off on June 1st and goes through November 30th. Hurricanes can seem scary but being prepared will help keep your family and property safe. When a storm is approaching and becomes a potential threat to your area, the National Weather Service will issue watches and warnings to keep you up to date on how to prepare.
A "hurricane watch" indicates the possibility that you could experience hurricane conditions within 36 hours. This watch should trigger your family's disaster plan and protective measures should be taken, especially those actions that require extra time such as securing a boat, leaving a barrier island, etc. Many of us live on a barrier island which means we need to start preparing now, if not sooner.
A "hurricane warning" indicates that sustained winds of at least 74 mph are expected within 24 hours. Once this warning has been issued, your family should be in the process of completing protective actions and deciding the safest lo ...
