SAVE Docket Program was developed through the collaboration of Fighting Against Injustice Toward Harmony (FAITH), law enforcement, community agencies/partners, and the courts. The SAVE Docket allows individuals to complete community service hours or participate in specified programs in lieu of paying court costs. It is not only a financial savings for the individual, but also a cost savings for the taxpayers who support the costs associated with arresting and incarcerating these individuals. In essence, the SAVE Docket could shift the paradigm from sentencing, jail and court cost to opportunities to improve program participants’ lives and the community. However, individuals who choose not to avail themselves of the SAVE Docket options may face progressively more serious consequences. This approach offers fairness and potential cost savings to the participants, the justice system and to local governments.
The SAVE Docket has many benefits for participants, some financial and others less tangible. By encouraging individuals to participate in community programs, additional people can take positive steps to improve their conditions. Reductions in outstanding warrants for minor offenses will reduce employment and service access barriers.
We are looking for volunteers for the program and for organizations that can provide service hours or services for the participants.”

About The Volusia-Flagler County Coalition for the Homeless (the Coalition) was established in 2000 as a 501(c)3 nonprofit corporation. It was founded by a group of individuals who took action to organize homeless assistance in the community. The Coalition was designated as the lead agency in the two-county region to apply for and administer state and federal funds allocated to alleviate homelessness.
Under the leadership of Executive Director Lindsay Roberts, the Coalition led the community to develop Come Home: A Ten Year Plan to End Homelessness, which was co-authored by the Daytona Regional Chamber of Commerce and Daytona State College. Adopted in 2006, the Plan marked an important milestone in the effort to mitigate the impacts of homelessness on families and individuals and coordinate public and private resources.
To meet the goals of the Plan, the Coalition operates the homeless Continuum of Care (CoC) for Volusia and Flagler Counties. One of 28 regional continuums in Florida, the CoC is a collaborative of agencies that provide emergency, transitional, and permanent housing opportunities and supportive services needed by people experiencing homelessness to achieve and maintain self-sufficiency. The collaborative includes homeless housing and service providers, law enforcement, local government, health and mental health providers, the faith community and homeless or formerly homeless members.
The CoC is governed by the Ranking and Review Committee, a Board-appointed committee that guides the annual strategic planning process, and administers the competitive funding process.
In 2011, the Coalition began the process of updating the Plan in partnership with the Volusia County Council and Stetson University.
