Our Social Enterprises are Metro Min owned and operated entities with the core purpose of creating social impact and generating revenue to support our programs.
At Metropolitan Ministries, our social enterprises must include these 4 pillars of success (or we won’t do them):
- Align with our mission of alleviating suffering, promoting dignity, and instilling self-sufficiency
- Educate and train our clients or partners
- Involve citizens in understanding and caring for their disadvantaged neighbors
- Generate revenue to support our programs
Our Social Enterprises
Inside the Box
Inside the Box is a catering business with a twist. Aside from serving delicious food, we provide culinary arts education and hands-on vocational training to men and women transitioning out of homelessness.
Effinity educates and coaches organizations in Trauma-Informed Care, Compassion Fatigue, De-escalation, and other best practices used throughout our organization to non-profits throughout the US.
Bloom Again Thrift Store
Our Thrift Store serves the Tampa Bay community. We provide clothing, furniture, and many other items to homeless and low-income families. Items sold at our store directly support our mission.
