Learn MoreAbout Our History
Community Faith Outreach was established in 2005, after a group of like-minded people came together consistently to address issues of mutual concern in the Bi-Counties of Palm Beach & Broward. It became clear, we could do more together than each of us could do separately as an entity of change. As a result, we formalized as a volunteer organization in 2007, begin to connect with the less fortunate and other grassroots agencies with the same goals.
The vision of Community Faith Outreach is to incrementally connect with people who has mutual passions, with a willingness to engage disadvantaged groups through relationship building, fostering alliances and demonstrate a commitment to genuine team work. As a result, we partnered with Jesus Is Life, Teach the World to Fish, Emmanuel Child Development Center, the local medical center and other community minded grassroots organizations that are committed to make a tangible difference in the surrounding areas. In addition, we continue to formulate partnerships with churches, farms, medical & other community organizations.
Since 2010 we have partnered with Chick-fil-A to strengthen marriages, with Emmanuel Children Center to provide the 1st funded Community Therapeutic Garden for kids & families in PBC.
