Mobile Pantry Program

Recognizing the challenges that many elderly clients face and the growing level of food insecurity among the senior community, LifeNet4Families operates a mobile pantry program focusing on providing food and fresh produce to seniors and other disadvantaged groups who have limited access to transportation.  LifeNet4Families offers home delivery for elderly people with medical challenges.  Volunteers are able to deliver perishable and non-perishable food items, pet food, and hygiene products to assist those seniors who are physically and financially unable to support themselves without assistance.  The program also provides 1600 food boxes each month to individuals and families that are struggling to keep food on the table.  Food is distributed at various locations where need is identified and partnerships established, including two Broward County Housing Authority locations, and two faith-based locations—The Faith Center where food is distributed to more than 300 individuals and families each month), and First United Apostolic Church where we operate our off-site pantry, distributing more than 1,500 food boxes each month.

Health and Well-Being

In order to regain stability, people must have access to basic necessities that are often taken for granted. Here at LifeNet4Families, we provide access to shower facilities, hygiene products, clean clothing, haircuts and restrooms.  Through our commitment to collaboration, we partner with The Pride Center, and they provide on-site HIV testing services.  The Veterans Administration (VA) has an on-site representative to address the healthcare needs of veterans who may be eligible for healthcare services, but not accessing care regularly.  We recently expanded our services to include on-site medical assistance through a partnership with Holy Cross Hospital.  Twice weekly, on-site nurses respond to the needs of clients by providing testing for HIV, hypertension, diabetes, hepatitis, flu vaccinations, and referrals for medical treatment.  This has helped to reduce the burden on medical services providers across our community—including local ER's.  This type of healthcare and preventative care assistance has many of our clients on a path to improved health.
