“The North Miami Foundation for Senior Citizens’ Services, Inc. has been providing my father and my mother with home delivered meals and information and referral sources since 2003.  We truly appreciated the support and understanding this agency provides the elderly in North Miami  Their ability to assist the Haitian community through the governmental process of Medicaid and food stamps has been a blessing .  No words can express our appreciation.  We thank you very much. Thank you"


“When I got home from the hospital, had a table’s worth of paperwork, feeling weak as a kitten and broke, down and out - you name it.  I had just survived anal cancer and my salvation was the daily meal from my wonderful North Miami Foundation for Senior Citizens’ Services, Inc.!  From 85 lbs., I gradually got back to 105 lbs. and am feeling better every day.  The drivers are courteous, the food excellent and my appreciation is endless. I was a former employee of the Foundation and enjoyed every minute of my 7 years there.  I am now a volunteer and proud of it. My love to all and God Bless"
