We serve the local population by providing the following services: applying for benefits, checking the status of an application, telephone access to call DCF, Medicaid, food stamps, and cash assistance (after qualifying interview).

We need your support to provide for our families and children. All of our programs are offered at no cost to those we serve. The need is great. In Miami Dade over 30% of all school age children live in poverty and single parent households account for 18% of all households. Over 51 percent of all children living in poverty live in single-parent female headed households.
