Loy Khambray, a local artist, and her team of volunteers have spent the past few months adding colorful and inspiring art to the bedroom walls of our SafePlace2B shelter in St. Pete.
Experts say exercise can help you feel happier, strengthen bones and muscles, and improve sleep quality and relaxation, which is why the kids at our SafePlace2B youth shelter in Clearwater went out for a bike ride. Biking is especially beneficial when you end at an ice cream shop. Thanks for the bike donation Regions Bank.

Family Resources had a great turnout for our 2018 Manatee Charity Golf Classic on October 6. Thank you to all of the golfers who came out for a morning of golf to support our programs. We also want to thank Light Application Team Consulting and all of the sponsors that made this event possible.
Parents and children have shown dedication and commitment to graduating the 13-week SNAP (Stop, Now, and Plan) Program and as a result their family has benefited from the results.
One mom who completed the program said, “I have learned to be more patient with both my girls and to stop and listen to each of them as an individual. SNAP has made us much closer.”
