Outreach Programs serve those in need throughout our community.
The TRUE (Toward the Relief of Unusual Emergencies) Fund
Through T.R.U.E funds All Saints’ Episcopal Church continuously helps individuals and families who are in crisis. Our intent is to help them return to self-sufficiency, and we do this in the name of Jesus Christ.
This service is completely supported by the members of All Saints’ church and managed by a group of volunteers under the direction of our Rector, Deacon and Vestry.
Individuals requesting help must present photo ID and documents that identify the need for assistance. We collaborate with other agencies that provide similar services and in some instances are able to jointly assist the individual in need.
The Henry Sumner LeDuc Student Scholarship
The Leduc Scholarship Fund was established in 1976 from a restricted endowment of the Leduc family, and is supplemented by an annual grant from the Gladys Waaler Foundation. The Committee administering this fund awards 5 to 10 scholarships of $1,000 to $4,000 annually to Jensen Beach High School seniors. The committee determines award winners based upon some or all of the following factors: academic achievement; financial need; volunteer efforts in civic, school, or religious activities; overcoming obstacles; personal characteristics; and/or work experience. Included in the awards are the Tony Langran Memorial Award based on those factors plus a commitment to faith, and the Jim and Wanda Beymer Award based on those factors with special emphasis on overcoming obstacles.
The Sirote Scholarship
The Sirote Charitable Foundation, Inc., founded by the late Stanley Sirote, awards five $10,000 scholarships, renewable for three additional years, to Jensen Beach High School seniors. Mr. Sirote was a business man and quiet philanthropist who sought to help those in need who had a purpose and determination to succeed. He stressed qualities such as honesty, loyalty, integrity and respect for all people, and compassion for those working to overcome personal hardships – qualities that are major factors in the selection of the scholarship winners.
The DeFiore-Glover Scholarship Fund
The DeFiore-Glover Scholarship Fund was formally organized and created in the fall of 2010 by Clarence “Buddy” Glover in honor of his partner of 51 years Donald DeFiore. The purpose of the fund is to provide scholarships and grants in Martin and St. Lucie counties to worthy students needing assistance. Nearly ten thousand dollars in scholarship/grant money was distributed in the last year.
All Saints Thrift Shop
Reselling quality used goods in a comfortable setting is the mission of All Saints’ Thrift Shop. Located across the street from the church and Houg Hall, the Thrift shop is open Monday through Saturday from 10am to 2pm. Here you’ll find clothing and household goods that are offered to the public at drastically reduced prices.
Jensen Beach Food Program
Each Sunday the members of the congregation are asked to bring specific foodstuffs for distribution to those in need via the Jensen Beach House of Hope.
This is the outreach arm of The Women’s Fellowship. They produce quilts and tote bags for Hibiscus House in Jensen Beach and also provide Christmas Stockings for these children. If there is a Bazaar, they supply hand-made items for sale. The women also make “goodie bags” for new visitors to All Saints’ Sunday Services and provide a mug to use for coffee as recipients peruse the interesting literature and prayers provided in the bag. Volunteers meet every Wednesday in Bethany House, which is located across from the Parish Hall, following the 10 am service.
