Earnest Faust, Jr.

Lakeland Housing Authority,  ROSS Coordinator

The tip of the Iceberg! Food, clothing and shelter… Seniors are often in need of help. A major issue is the need for affordable, quality housing. 

The monthly presentation of the Rath Senior ConNEXTions Center will address this vital need. Earnest Faust, Jr. will present information from the Lakeland Housing Authority. 

Earnest is always available to assist with giving answers for housing needs. He will further discuss the amount of available housing in relation to the overwhelming need. 



The mission of the Rath ConNEXTions Center, as a non-profit, free service, is to “provide seniors 50+ with education, resources, services, advocacy, and leadership, enabling them to age with independence and dignity” in Central Florida.

This mission is realized through Senior Scholars education programs, referrals to agencies providing assistance and resources, and support groups.  Ongoing seminars and meetings provide current information and research related to healthcare, social services, housing, transportation, and mental health.

Why Call Us?

We provide referrals for: Transportation     


Health and Welfare     

Education Programs     

Volunteer Opportunities       

Donations to support our efforts


As you face the multi-faceted challenges of aging, know that help is often just a phone call away.  There are many valuable resources-often free-here in Polk, Highlands, and Hardee Counties.  Let the Rath ConNEXTions Center help direct you to the resources that are right for you.

Feel free to leave questions or messages at the phone number or email below, and we will be more than happy to help you.

If you need assistance, call 863-220-7002

All the best,
