Hobe Sound, located in the southeast corner of Martin County, has traditionally been at the end of the social service lifeline which is centered in Stuart. As Hobe Sound has grown, moreover, the needs of our less fortunate neighbors have increased.
The Hobe Sound community has responded to this urgent need, contributing over $1 million to the Chest this past year. Many residents also serve on the Board or one of the Visiting Committees. These committees monitor the agencies we support to ensure that your dollars are prudently spent.
By any standard, the results of the Chest in recent years have been outstanding.
