We are a group of friends using the teachings of Matthew 25 as our guide, to utilize resources to provide basic necessities,spiritual support,and guidance with a message of love and compassion to the homeless population in our community. We come from different churches and backgrounds and we want to make a difference for those in need. We started out in a one bedroom mobile home and are now a 501c-3 Not for profit organization All monies and items donated are used to help the homeless in Lakeland and Surrounding areas in Polk County Florida
Each week we prepare and deliver 100+ meals to the homeless and underprivileged of the Greater Lakeland Florida area.We offer food, clothing, personal care items, and lots of prayer. (Each person is an individual created by God.)We make sure that each life we touch is covered in prayer.
It is not just about feeding the homeless.It is about meeting them where they are. Going out to their camps,to get an understanding of their environment.Then we deliver the basics of food, drink,shelter and clothing, they need security, an identity and a purpose. We build relationships with those we serve through conversing with them, hearing their stories and knowing their names. When someone is missing we ask about them, if they are hurting we pray for them, and if they are joyful we pray with them. They become family. We make a commitment to be there, every week,regardless of weather or number of volunteers. We are out there sharing in their lives. We encourage them to give back by helping others in their community. On occasion we have opportunities for them to help with special projects and events.
