2018 was another exciting year for From Outside In! Thanks to amazing volunteers and partners, we have been able to accomplish a lot of our goals for the year! Please take a look at some of our biggest accomplishments in 2018:
Opened the doors to From Outside In’s first-ever, retail store location
Raised nearly $30,000 in individual donations and sponsorships
Was given a value of over $60,000 of donated space
Served Over 350 youth in the Community
Had a total of 15 shopping events, more than any previous year. Of those 15 events, 6 of them were located at the temporary store location (which only opened in June) and we were able to receive at least 15 “walk-ins” of individuals and families that were in dire need
Partnered with 9 different referral agencies in the community to serve youth who are in need
Completed construction, and launched the From Outside In Tiny Home for mobile-events.
From May to January 2018, we had over 230 volunteers assist us with vital support! Including groups from UCF, Seminole State College, Liberty Mutual, Advent Health, Florida Hospital Church, and more!
Volunteers completed over 656 volunteer hours in just 8 months!
