What We Do
Homeless Outreach: Tampa Homeless Outreach staff and volunteers bring basic survival needs directly to our homeless neighbors, without judgment or expectations. Our Outreach Services allow us to distribute food, drinking water, clothing, sleeping bags, tents, hygiene supplies, harm reduction supplies, batteries, bus tickets, and special request items when possible. We also spend time getting to know people and recommending social services as appropriate.
Special Wishes Fulfillment: Tampa Homeless Outreach helps to fill the gaps in providing goods and services not funded by governmental agencies. Quite often these”Special Wishes” are obstacles that our clients must overcome in order to transition from homeless status to self-sufficient or to avoid returning to homeless status.
These Special Wishes including assisting with car repairs to allow clients to have transportation to/from their jobs, to helping with home upkeep to avoid fines from code enforcement.
