Our relationship with New Life Family Center has been significant. Through grants from Episcopal Charities of Southeast Florida and Southern Wine and Spirits, Trinity volunteers have worked with this transitional housing program to provide $500 worth of new home supplies and the priceless assistance of the volunteers. We would like to refurbish a room at the shelter. Trinity Makeover, if you’d like, but will require more volunteers and donations.
