Our Vision

Originally called Not By Bread Alone, this organization was founded in 1988 to supply cleaning and personal hygiene products to food stamp recipients.  As we learned more about the effects of poverty on the family, we began to expand into other areas of outreach. Today we provide comprehensive wrap-around supports to over 100,000 people every year. Our vision is to give people a way out instead of a handout; to be a source of inspiration and encouragement.  We believe that if we help those in our community who have the least, we not only improve their quality of life, but we strengthen our whole community.

Through Make A House A Home more than $3 million in housewares have been given to families in need.  Proud to Learn has given away more than 10,000 backpacks filled with school supplies.  We've served tens of thousands of meals as part of our crisis response.

Quick Stats Of Our Progress

The average cost of a meal at home in Miami-Dade is $3.37.  In Miami-Dade, a person receiving the maximum SNAP (food stamps) benefit receives $1.47 per meal.
