A Food Bank and Service Center for those in need serving the needs of South Lake County, Florida
The FAITH Neighborhood Center was founded in 1972 and has been in continuous operation since opening. The Center has grown until now we have over 100 active volunteers. Our dedicated volunteers allow us to keep the costs of running the Center with a small part-time staff as low as possible.
We provide support to low income families and individuals in South Lake County– Mascotte, Groveland, Clermont, Minneola, Montverde and points in between and south to the county line.
We offer several kinds of assistance:
• Clothing, small appliances, and miscellaneous household items
• Financial support to families about to have their utilities turned off.
• Medical support in conjunction with the South Lake Community Health Center.
• Educational/Training opportunities
• Assistance in applying for food stamps, Medicaid and Emergency Assistance.
Sondra Green spends countless hours working at and for the Center. Sondra is trained in all aspects of the Center and has worked in every department. She currently handles Client Case Management, is our Fundraising Coordinator, assists in Daily Operations and does whatever else our Executive Director can think up for her to do.
Thanks Sondra for your outstanding service to the needs of our clients.
