About Resurrection House, Inc.


Beginning its 24th year of operation, Resurrection House in Sarasota, Florida does not accept funding from the city, county, state or federal government.  Donations from individuals, businesses, foundations and religious groups form the core of our $500,000 operating budget.

Volunteers Make The Difference

Operating with only a small paid staff, it is the 200+ volunteers that allows Resurrection House to provide its multitude of services to an ever-increasing number of clients.  The volunteers not only donate their time but also bring caring and compassion that are instrumental in providing a nurturing and respectful atmosphere.

Faith Based

Resurrection House was founded in 1989 by six downtown churches.  Not surprisingly, we minister to the poorest of the poor and attempt to facilitate their return to an accepting and accomodating society.  Over thirty religious entities contribute to the success enjoyed by Resurrecton House.
