HOMELESSNESS in SoFlo
PACKAGES OF HOPE
Every month we make more than 200 care packages to distribute to the homeless. This is because more than 64% of homeless people become victims of human trafficking. They are often tricked into exchanging their bodies to have a roof over their heads.
We partner with different organizations to carry serve the homeless such as Plantation SDA Children's and Youth Ministries (serving Broward County) and Hope Ministry (serving Dade County & Broward).
HILIGHTING HOPE MINISTRY
Every Saturday 52 weeks for the year Hope Project Ministry feeds the homeless in Downtown Miami and Pompano Beach. Christmas day 2019, our son's wish was to help with this project, so we had breakfast early, open gifts and headed to Miami with Miss Jessie. The poverty almost brought me to tears, just seeing people living on the streets and hearing the stories of the few I conversed with as to how they got there. One man was an engineer and lost his job and had no family support and ended up on the street. I was also teared up to see the humanitarian we are raising who after church will wait to help Ms. Jessie pack the food and when I am being impatient she said "You calling him, but he is doing God's work."
M J Scarlett Foundation Inc work with other community organizations to provide care packages to those in need which include a face masks, hygiene products, water, snacks, clothes, and most importantly information on human trafficking awareness.
There is a direct connection between Human Trafficking and homelessness. Let's spread awareness and save lives.
