We transform lives.
Three thousand of our neighbors— men, women and children—are homeless every night in Jacksonville. Each one has an immediate need for food and shelter. But just as important each one deserves the opportunity to achieve a better life with a home of their own, an income to live on and access to health care. Sulzbacher provides programs that transform lives. In the process, we create a better city for all of us. And we need your help.


Sulzbacher is unique.
We are Northeast Florida’s largest provider of comprehensive services for homeless men, women and children. We are one of only a few centers in the nation to offer a full range of services for the homeless 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year.

We serve nutritious meals and offer safe shelter. But that is just the beginning. We provide outstanding health care and high-quality children’s programs. Our job placement assistance and life skills programs equip men and women for employment and for success. We offer something simple, but important—hope.
