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:
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 obtaining housing, food stamps, jobs and locating other available resources in the community.
They 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. They might also provide transportation to a mental health facility for those who are suicidal or facing a severe mental or emotional crisis.
In 2016, LAHIA provided these services:
485 individuals utilized our community food pantry.
In order to accomplish our mission, we always welcome new volunteers who share our commitment to doing good in the world.
