Episcopal Charities of Southeast Florida Welcomes You

 

The poor and needy have been granted $1.9 million in aid as support from Episcopal Charities since 2000.
>Learn more about our work

Southeast Florida isn't just a haven for the retired and wealthy. Sadly, there are literally thousands of needy families that desperately require daily help and support. Young families, the elderly and those less fortunate receive a hot meal, a bag of groceries, medical assistance, clothing and shelter through Episcopal Charities Partners.

 
 

Episcopal Charities will be offering our "Beyond the Walls: Outreach Ministry Development, Management and Funding" in partnership with The Diocesan School for Christian Studies next year again! Everyone is invited to learn how to create, operate and sustain outreach ministries in your congregations, with the tools needed to be successful contained in our program!
