Family Services and Assistance Programs

Many families experience temporary financial distress, and know the emotional and mental distress that accompanies it. If the circumstances are sudden, very new, or short term, it can be frustrating to find that although you can’t provide for your family, you may not yet qualify for state/government assistance. There are, however, other options: The First United Methodist Church in Port St. Lucie provides food for families in need via Sarah’s Kitchen (a free, hot homemade meal for anyone, weekly) and through their Emergency Food Pantry, which is open once a week. Call (772) 878-1155 for assistance or to offer to help.5
