Lakeland, destination for a mission trip with One More Child

The city of Lakeland, also known as ‘Swan City’, is located in Central Florida, midway between Tampa and Orlando with a current population of more than 110,000. Named after the numerous lakes in the area, it is a city that offers proximity to nature and the diverse Florida wildlife while numerous shopping areas and restaurants are never too far.

Even though there is much growth and prosperity in the area, more than 75,000 students face homelessness in Florida public schools. The state of Florida ranks among the top three US states in reported cases of human trafficking and it has the third highest number of children in foster care across the U.S. Our Lakeland campus Compassion Center serves many communities across Central Florida.

Reach your community

Sponsor a Child

Child Sponsorship meets the physical, emotional, and spiritual needs of children all around the world.
