Spirit of Life Lutheran Ministries provides service to the South Kitsap community through Little Doves Children's Learning Center and LifeCare Community FoodBank.
Our small food bank serves the greater Olalla area and is only open on Saturday mornings. Occasionally, we get a call from someone in dire straights who cannot come to the foodbank to take advantage of its services. The most recent event was a call from a grandmother who is raising her 4 small grandchildren . Thanks to the generosity of organizations such as the Great Give, we were able to put together a basket of food to take to this family. In this past 12 months, Little Doves has served over 50 families in our community and through these families we have been able to serve out our mission of providing high quality child care. Specifically, we added a new family in our center who has taken on three foster children, in addition to a child of their own. They came to Little Doves with three young children who needed nutrition, love, support, and guidance. Through communication, collaboration of our staff and this family, these amazing young children are now thriving socially, academically, nutritionally, emotionally and in all aspects of their development.
The financial struggle to continue to provide important services to our community is constant. Participation in the Kitsap Great Give will allow Spirit of Life Lutheran Ministries to continue operations at current levels and improve the quality of services provided to the community.
