Being the Change
Sometimes good people need a little help to make their lives whole. They come seeking relief from poverty, political oppression, and family abuse or neglect. We see them every day, disguised as mind-numbing, impersonal statistics. Sometimes it’s all too easy to forget that there are people hidden behind the numbers. And the only real way to create change, to help create better lives, to penetrate the fog of the statistics, is one person at a time. That is why at LSF, we strive for permanent change, offering a hand up not a hand out.
Helping our Florida Community
I've been doing this job for more than five years and to watch these young people turn their lives around right before my eyes is still the best part.
