Through direction from the City Commission, the City of Kissimmee participates and implements various initiatives associated with social services, homelessness, and affordable housing.

Social Services & Quality of Life
Each year, various non-profit organizations apply with the City of Kissimmee through the Social Services Funding Process. The City Commission then reviews each request and votes to allocate hundreds of thousands of dollars to help fund programs aimed at fighting homelessness, providing mental health and substance abuse treatment, helping families with case management and support, and other countless services.

Affordable Housing
Additionally, the City Commission has made it a priority to focus on creating and supporting affordable housing options within the City. Recently, the City provided supplemental funding for Vineland Landings, a 200-unit affordable housing complex.

The City is currently exploring additional projects to further increase affordable housing opportunities and options within the City.

If you or someone you know needs help, the City has prepared a detailed list of support organizations that can provide guidance and even services for almost any situation.
