Miracles For Pasco
Sixty-five thousand people in Pasco County live below the 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.
In 2015, we expanded our services in Pasco County with 12 transitional housing units for homeless families with children on our Holiday, Fla. campus. Today we have a total of 24 units: 20 family rooms, two singles rooms with three singles each for six total single women, and two apartments that families and singles can transition into after securing employment. The length of stay depends on individualized goals. It typically ranges from 3 to 12 months. More extended periods of stay happen when education is needed to achieve these goals and self-sufficiency.
Miracles for Pasco is a replicable model of our program in Hillsborough County, which has an 87% success rate one year later. Miracles for Pasco will enable the same results in Pasco County.

Sanctuary Model of Care based on the knowledge that trauma and chronic stress have a profound and lasting impact on people and the community.
Our program helps individuals explore what they want their life to look like for them and their families. Together, we identify goals to achieve and a plan to overcome any barriers in the way of achieving those goals. Through wraparound services, we ensure families and singles develop skills for a healthy body, mind, and spirit. This helps to ensure long-term self-sufficiency when they leave our campus.
