Since February 2014, The Smile Trust formally known as (Make the Homeless Smile) has served over 100,000 meals between Miami, FL and Atlanta, GA. led by CEO & Founder Valencia Gunder, is on the ground to help neighbors in need before, during and after hurricanes and other community disasters.
Through our programming, we seek to heal and empower disenfranchised communities by focusing on their hearts, souls and minds. Our signature program is the “Smile Day,” where we provide fresh food, clothing, shoes and toiletries.
At The Smile Trust, our programs are based on what we believe are the three keys to healing homelessness: dignity, access and knowledge. Having received 501c3 status in 2015, it is our goal to grow, and heal as many people as we can not just in South Florida, but throughout the country.
