Sozo Kids

The Sozo Kids Program provides hope and opportunity to the children of the Ocala National Forest. A food bank and multiple feeding sites serve 5000-7000 people every month with emergency groceries and hot meals. Turning Point Mentor Centers provide safety, homework help, tutoring, food, school supplies and more to 40 children at a time. The Filling Station is a restaurant that was opened with the sole purpose of giving Forest youth the opportunity for a better life, by teaching a work ethic and providing much needed experience and skills leading to a gainful employment.
