Give to help families and children in crisis.

Florida’s families and children need caring neighbors like you to make it through life’s darkest moments. These are the most vulnerable of our neighbors teenagers like Jill, who entered our Sexual/Physical Abuse Treatment Program where she shared:

“I was only 5 when my grandfather started sexually abusing me. He told me he’d hurt me even more if I ever told anyone.”

Jill remained silent about the abuse until she was 15. But by then she was acting out at school, fighting with her parents, cutting herself, and using drugs to numb her inner pain. “I could see I was spiraling out of control,” says Jill. “I was scared.” Because of the generous support of friends like you, she got the professional care she needed to heal from the trauma of the sexual abuse. Now, she can sleep at night and concentrate in school.

It’s heartbreaking, but there are many more people in Florida like Jill who suffer each day and they need neighbors like you who care.

Because of the generosity of people like you, just last year…

  • 717 teenagers found a safe place at LSF residential youth shelters where they received compassionate care and counseling services
  • 300 children received professional care to rise above the trauma of sexual abuse
  • More than 50,000 meals and snacks were served each week to ensure children received nutritious meals daily
  • 26,560 refugees from oppressed countries received job skills training, second language classes, and job referrals

Your gift today helps more families and children in crisis receive the physical and emotional care they need to come out of life’s darkest circumstances.

Thank you for your generous support to provide healing, hope, and help to those like Jill. We’re so grateful for you!
