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 your 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.
We are so grateful to The Florida Counseling Foundation, Ali's Hope, and our board member, Steve Reed, for contributions which helped raise the combined total of $10,000 in order for us to launch mental health counseling.
Ken Hoffmann, board member to both The Christian Sharing Center and Ali's Hope. Ken was instrumental in connecting The Sharing Centre to The Florida Counseling Foundation. In fact, this program wouldn't be possible had it not been for Ken making the introduction with Roger Shepherd of The Florida Counseling Foundation.
One of the most requested service that our clients have been requesting is mental health counseling. While we are fortunate to have staff that have worked with Aspire Health Partners and is well versed in mental health and substance abuse, he is not licensed to provide these services for our clients. Through a new partnership with Florida Counseling Foundation, we are excited to announce that starting June 17th , The Christian Sharing Center will be able to offer our families with children, couples and individuals mental health sessions from 9am to 12pm every Monday. While free to our clients, this service is unfortunately not free for The Sharing Center. We have raised $8,000 of the $10,000 seed money needed to launch this program. Therefore, we respectfully request $2,000 dollars from Ali's Hope Foundation to be able to provide 250 hours of mental health sessions to our families with children. Currently we have 21 families with 45 children enrolled in our three-year LifeBuilder program and an additional 15 families with 36 children in our six-month Siemer program. This is in addition to the thousands of families and homeless individuals that walk in our door each year asking for assistance. This built in pipeline of clients has already enabled us to start pre-booking the mental health counseling sessions and the overwhelming positive response in just the past few weeks alone have us working with our partner to expand to an additional second counseling day before the program even officially opens.
