65,000 people in Pasco County live below poverty level — just one emergency away from homelessness. And it’s not just a job loss that could push them over the edge. Money is so tight that one day off work to take care of a sick child might mean a single mom can’t pay next month’s utility bill. 3,305 persons were homeless in Pasco County on any given day in 2013. Over 700 families reached out to us looking for housing solutions in 2014.

Our Goal

Our goal is to raise $2 Million for making miracles in Pasco, 24 supported housing units in two phases for homeless families and children. Two corporate leaders have each pledged to match your gifts up to $250K. That means your gift will triple.  Every dollar you give will have the impact of $3.00.

How to partner with us

 Make Miracles For Pasco a Home

The building is up, but the rooms are empty

These 24 new supportive housing units will help homeless families and single women reach housing stabilization by providing emergency shelter and core supportive services. Families will be cared for in the facility for a period of 3-6 months before finding permanent housing. A replicable model of our program in Hillsborough County, which has an astounding 93% success rate one year later, Miracles for Pasco will enable the same results in Pasco County.
