Humanists of the Treasure Coast was founded in 2010 to meet the needs of individuals and families who strive to be ethical and compassionate without traditional religion or a belief in supernatural beings. Our goals are to provide a supportive environment for like minded individuals and to advocate for the equal treatment of the secular community. We support the separation of church and state which protects all religious perspectives from government intrusion and protects Americans from having the government impose a particular religious belief on its' citizens. We utilize the scientific method of rational inquiry as the preferred method for evaluating information and drawing conclusions. We hold weekly meetings, social events and programs to educate the general public in order to counter some of the negative stereotypes that some have about the Humanist, agnostic and atheist community. Each year since we were organized as a 501 (c) 3 our members have helped contribute to people in need on the Treasure Coast. Our Social Action Committee helps the young women at the Martin Girls' Academy which is a facility for female juvenile offenders. We provide the young women with tutoring, social activities, gifts and catered lunches for the holidays. We provide the secular community with transportation, hospital /hospice visits, and personal help as needed.
