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:
• Medical support in conjunction with the South Lake Community Health Center.
• Educational/Training opportunities
• Assistance in applying for food stamps, Medicaid and Emergency Assistance.
Aimee has been a staunch supporter and volunteer of FAITH Neighborhood Center for 13 years, having been recruited by the late Pastor Terry. “You know, NO ONE said “no” to Pastor Terry! (Anyone who knew her can vouch for that statement. God rest her soul, Terry was a true saint, and we all miss her dearly.)
Aimee and her husband, Christian, have one daughter, Mackenzie, who has been a part of FNC all this time. Aimee formerly worked for Disney but now manages a vacation rental and Christian works at Universal Studios. When asked what her fondest memories are of FNC, she replied, “Seeing and working with the kids.” And she is willing to do whatever is needed when she volunteers. Thank you, Aimee.
News and Coming Events
Honored and thrilled to present the Oakley Seaver Special Service Award to FAITH Neighborhood Center. Executive Director Trish Kry and Board Member Susan Sherman accepted the award at the 2019 South Lake Business Awards - Best of South Lake.
The award, named in honor of my grandaddy, aligns beautifully with the Center and how they strive to make a positive impact in our community. Both grandaddy and Trish are legacy servants in our community. Congratulations, FAITH Neighborhood Center and Trish Kry.
