In 2007, Generations Christian Church sent a group of 12 people to an Outreach Conference in Colorado and they came back with a vision to unite and strengthen our community by serving the underserved among us. One Community Now was formed as a 501c3, faith-based organization with the goal of bringing local churches, businesses, organizations, and government agencies together to help meet the un-met needs of children, families and veterans in Pasco County.
Every child should have enough to eat and the opportunity for an education. One Community Now is passionate about working to assist children in the following areas:
- Pasco Pack A Sack Food 4 Kids
- Neighborhood Sports Programs (basketball, cheerleading & soccer)
- School Volunteers (assist in the classroom, mentor and tutor children)
All families should have the opportunity to live in a safe community where they know their neighbors and can help one another in times of need. We believe relationships are the key to building stronger neighborhoods. Neighborhood Impact is designed to strengthen community civic associations and provide programs for children and families. Our first neighborhood work in is Holiday Lake Estates in Holiday, FL.
- Sports Programs (soccer, basketball and cheerleading)
- Neighborhood Projects
- Seasonal Community Events
- Getting Ahead in a Just-Getting-By World Program
- Community Dinners
Every person should have sufficient food, clothing and shelter, but we believe that alleviation does not come from a hand out, but rather a hand up. Veterans Stand Down is an annual event where our local community comes together to assist homeless veterans by providing resources and education that can help alleviate poverty. Stand Down is the venue for doctors, dentists, barbers, benefits advisors, churches, businesses, government agencies and many more to connect with and serve local veterans in need.
