Meet our Partners: The Place of Comfort

Meet our Partners: The Place of ComfortEvery year, Second Harvest provides food to approximately 731,900 individuals through our partner agencies. I want to take a moment to profile one of our nearly 500 partner agencies: The Place of Comfort.

The Place of Comfort has four locations that serve Osceola, Orange, Lake and Seminole Counties.  I went to the Seminole County location to talk to them and see how their organization operates.

A large portion of their clients that are afflicted with HIV/AIDS.  The agency averages 2,000 total clients for all four counties served every month.  The Place of Comfort offers other services for the HIV/ AIDS clients along with food assistance, such as rent assistance, utility assistance and counseling.

For Thanksgiving, they distributed over 200 turkey baskets for people and families affected with HIV/AIDS.  The Place of Comfort works in collaboration to purchase the turkey baskets with one of our other Partner Agencies Joy MCC in Orlando.

For Christmas, The Place of Comfort conducted a toy drive at Regions Bank in Longwood.  The toy drive helped approximately 25 of their HIV/AIDS families and children.
