Serving poor and homeless families
in Hillsborough, Pinellas, Pasco and Polk



Metropolitan Ministries is an outreach center that provides essential services such as food, clothing, and shelter assistance to families in financial distress.

Beyond the essentials, we also offer a place for inspiring, authentic worship services as well as Christian educational opportunities and small group ministries where people of all ages can grow in mind and spirit while finding friendship and forging life-changing relationships.

As a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization, we rely on the generosity of others to fulfill our purpose and to aid as many persons as possible who need a helping hand.

Giving of yourself - Volunteer

The success of Metropolitan Ministries in Pasco is dependent on a workforce of volunteers. There are a variety of opportunities for those who wish to give of their time and talents, for example:

  • greeting visitors and answering phones at the resource center
  • sorting donations, helping visitors select food & clothes as a "personal shopper"
  • teaching classes or leading small groups
  • seasonal opportunities to volunteer at Summer Camp in the summer and in the Holiday Center at Thanksgiving and Christmas

Do you have special talents or abilities that you could share? Do you enjoy working with kids? Are you a computer whiz? Can you do construction work or odd jobs? We can find a place for you!

Volunteer orientation sessions are held on the second and fourth Mondays of every month at 10:00 AM, with occasional sessions on Saturdays. In addition, Monday afternoon sessions are held during preparation for summer and holiday programs. To sign up for orientation and to discuss volunteer opportunities, please contact Nancy Dougherty, Outreach Director, at (727) 937-3268.
