Character education, violence prevention and substance abuse prevention services are available to elementary and middle school students in several locations throughout Florida. The name of this program is Eckerd Connects Hi-Five, and a Harvard University study found that it positively impacts student behavior at nearly twice the rate of similar programs operating in the United States. In weekly classroom sessions that combine instruction and role-playing, students build skills for: controlling impulses, managing anger,coping with peer pressure, and gaining empathy for others. The classroom sessions are followed by family workshops that help students transfer the skills they learned in the classroom to their homes. Children in need of more intensive guidance receive a personalized prevention plan, mentoring, and involvement in meaningful community service programs.

Founded in 2004, We Care is an unfunded 501(c)(3) whose mission is to support our neighbors in need in every way we can. Since it’s inception, We Care has been on the front lines of hunger relief. Our trucks go out three days a week to recover food from grocery stores throughout the area, but our work doesn’t stop there. We realize that household items can sometimes double a family’s grocery bill, so we are constantly collecting laundry detergents, cleaning supplies, and hygiene products to redistribute to the community. Our new mission is to not only fight hunger in our community, but also the plight of poverty that ravages many in Citrus County. A large sector of the people we serve have full time employment but do not earn enough to take care of their family’s basic needs and we are working to fill those gaps. We are sitting down with our clients to find out what they need and to further understand the struggles they are facing.
