PROGRAMS AND PARTNERS
Micah Center is continually looking for ways to impact our community. We are always looking for the best partners and programs to impact our community.
Our literacy program is now in partnership with Therapeutic Community Recreation Center. "Therapeutic Community Recreation Center’s drive is to specialize in behavior management and social-emotional development through therapeutic play and learning."
Operation Attack on Poverty was established in 1967 and has been serving south Saint Petersburg providing food assistance, clothing and electric bill assistance. Through the recent COVID19 pandemic, Micah Center helped to establish a monthly, "contactless" food distribution that averaged serving 60 families. The Food Pantry is now reopened on a weekly basis providing fresh produce and meat along with non-perishable items. The Clothing Closet is moving to provide a niche clothing infants through 5 year olds. Read below about how our partnership with Clothes to Kids is providing for school-age children.
Micah Center has partnered with Kind Mouse in distribution of food to hungry kids and raising financial support for their program. Kind Mouse's mission "is to assist families in transition and their chronically hungry children while developing the next generation of volunteers to carry on the mission of The Kind Mouse. No hardworking individual and their family should ever go hungry.
The Kind Mouse is focused on three activities:
1. To feed local children suffering from chronic hunger and food insecurities,
2. To develop the next generation of community leaders and activists so they continue the work of the Kind Mouse as long as there is need, and
3. To assist families in transition. It is our belief that no hardworking individual should suffer despair due to unforeseen economic hardship."
Clothes to Kids mission is to provide new and quality clothing to low-income or in crisis school-age children, free of charge. Clothes to Kids envisions a community in which every school-age child has quality clothing so that he or she may attend school with the confidence and self-esteem needed to achieve academic success.
