Welcome tours and presentations are offered monthly. Please come as our guest or bring your group to learn more about how to become involved in our mission.
There are many ways to help our neighbors in Seminole County with donations of food, clothing, furniture, cash and more. It all makes a difference!
We have a variety of volunteer opportunities, from sorting donations and serving our clients to event planning and data entry. Our volunteers are at the heart of all we do.
The ALICE report, provided by United Way, refers to the population in our communities which are Asset Limited, Income Constrained, Employed. The ALICE population represents those among us who are working, but due to child care costs, transportation challenges, high cost of living and so much more are living paycheck to paycheck.
The full report and statistics released in 2019 by the United Way reflect data collected in 2016 and is the most current available for Florida and Seminole County.
The actual number of households in Seminole County whose incomes were below the ALICE threshold ($58,392 for a family of 4) increased from 62,467 to 65,344 during this two year period. The ALICE households living at or below the survival income level in our county has continued to increase even with an economy which has recovered from the recession. When these households experience a disruption of income they rely on The Sharing Center and other local resources for help.
We hope that you will find this information helpful and can see why the services provided by The Sharing Center are in such demand and important to the residents of Seminole County. Please take a moment to look at the full report to better understand the challenges many face today. Alice Report Florida
