Mount Dora Children's Home and Christian Academy

A Single Parent Program providing a life-changing opportunity for single parents who qualify. It is a spiritually based program that helps a single parent break the vicious cycle of poverty and despair.

A Group Care Program. Overseen by Christian house parents, the residential group care homes provide a positive family environment for boys and girls ages six to 18 who, often through no fault of their own, are in need of a more stable home environment.

We support them financially.
We provide Christmas gifts for children in the group care program.
We support the annual benefit dinner held in Jacksonville.
Our children participate in the Change for Children program, by collecting loose change in coin cans.
We collect Campbell's Labels for Education and Box Tops for Education for the Academy.

Sulzbacher House

A shelter for abused women and their families, The Sulzbacher Home is a place the church enjoys serving. Once a month a group takes cupcakes, drinks, party supplies, and presents to the home and throws birthday parties for the children currently living there. This gives church members a chance to celebrate children who are going through a hard time. And it’s no secret—birthday parties at Sulzbacher are a ton of fun!
