Love and Hope in Action was founded on the idea of helping those in need. Ever since our organization was established, we have endeavored to provide help where the need is greatest.
Our goal is to reduce hunger and mitigate serious health and safety risks for adults and families who are homeless and/or indigent living in Martin County, Florida. We offer a comprehensive array of programs and services to meet their basic needs and assist them with a plan to reach self-sufficiency.
Our services include:
Services Summary for 2018:
2,200 loads of laundry
48 moved out of homelessness, started a new journey or reunited with family
25 homeless recieved eyeglasses
63 birth certificates, 59 state ID cards and 13 FL driver's licenses obtained
75 received necessary medications
We also provide free case management services to help connect individuals with social services and medical or mental health assistance. Case management staff assist individuals with finding resources for housing, food stamps, jobs and locating other available services in the community.
We frequently start by helping clients obtain vital documentation such as birth certificates and identification cards. With proper I.D., clients can secure housing opportunities and access essential medical and mental health services.
Case managers transport and support clients who are experiencing life-threatening health crises such as cancer and other serious illnesses. This includes helping them schedule and attend crucial medical appointments. The case managers might also arrange transportation to a mental health facility for those who are suicidal or facing a severe mental or emotional crisis.
In order to accomplish our mission, we always welcome new volunteers who share our commitment to doing good in the world.
If you would like to help, please don't hesitate to contact us. A helping hand is always greatly appreciated. Thank you!
