Although our activities in Hillsborough are centered in Tampa, we provide support for those in need throughout the entire county. Tonight, more than 9,500 are homeless. Even worse, 8,000 of them will not even be able to find a bed at a shelter.
This is why the work that we accomplish with you is so important. Together we help people not only survive in the midst of homelessness but develop the tools that they need to get out of it.
