Introducing the Metro Brigaide
Are you living in fear, on the street? Are you ready to end your homelessness, but don’t know where to start? Our services are free and confidential. Find us in your neighborhood or call (813) 209-1044.
The Metro Brigaide Mobile Outreach team seeks to meet you “where you are,” help address your immediate needs and link you to the resources that can end your homelessness.
Services are conducted daily in various sites throughout Hillsborough County.
Mini hub sites have been established at over 20 locations throughout Hillsborough, Pasco, Pinellas, and Polk counties.
Outreach services were expanded to seven days a week and assembled a resource database with over 100 helping agencies and faith-based organizations. The team also developed an “app” to identify and map high-volume areas for future outreach activities.
