LifeNet 4 Families

Thirty Years of Caring


Founded in 1985, LifeNet4Families' mission is to be a seamless system of care for those in need in Broward County, by providing necessary food, ancillary services and referrals.  To accomplish this mission, LifeNet4Families serves approximately 5,000 individuals and families annually.  LifeNet4Families works to ensure that individuals and families residing in Broward County and facing hardships are able to obtain food and other basic necessities.  While reducing hunger is the primary goal of the organization, LifeNet4Families works to help clients regain or maintain stability by providing clients with access to on-site shower facilities, clothing, counseling, on-site health services, referrals, job readiness preparation, emergency financial assistance, mailing address usage, and mail retrieval services.  From the humble beginnings of distributing a few peanut butter and jelly sandwiches to the homeless, to today's provision of 1.3 million meals a year, the agency's dramatic development has reflected  both the growing numbers and the growing needs of the poor in the community.


A world where everyone is free from hunger and poverty.
