- The Feed-a-Family food bag program is our first line of defense in preventing homelessness. If we can help reduce a families grocery bill with 32 pounds of nutritious food, that family (or individual) will have more money to cover other living expenses. Each year we distribute nearly 500 tons of food through this program.

- In partnership with Food Brings Hope and Volusia County HUM distributes weekend food bags to children whose families are food insecure at 10 local schools and 5 summer camp programs.

Mission Statement:
"Our mission is to prevent homelessness among low-income families by providing emergency assistance & to intervene on behalf of homeless people."
