What We Do

Prevent Homelessness

We help individuals and families maintain their homes and their dignity through case management, transitional housing programs and emergency financial assistance. We provide homeless men, women and children with the most basic necessities of food, shelter and the skills and resources they need to become self-sufficient.

Alleviate Hunger

We provide hunger relief services through our food pantries in Orlando, Cocoa, Daytona Beach, Lakeland and Winter Haven and through Agape Food Bank, our 21,000 square foot food distribution warehouse in Lakeland.

Provide Access to Healthcare

We provide free healthcare services including case management and preventative health education to individuals and families who are uninsured in areas of critical need. We serve individuals in Seminole, Lake, Sumter, Marion, and Osceola counties by promoting wellness and providing caring, quality medical care, specialty services and preventative health education.

Care for Immigrants & Refugees

We assist refugees who escape tragedy, violence and war to begin a new life in the U.S. through: housing and basic necessities, youth services, cultural orientation and employment assistance. We provide various services targeted to the specific needs of the Central Florida immigrant community to ensure, and promote justice, compassion and acceptance for all newcomers.
