Give Day Tampa Bay Success!
You Made It Happen!!
We are so incredibly grateful to the Tampa Bay community for supporting our Give Day Tampa Bay 2018 campaign to help our homeless neighbors. This year we focused our efforts on raising awareness for our one-of-a-kind homeless outreach and engagement program - The Coffee Shop!
The Coffee Shop assists our homeless neighbors by offering; showers, laundry service, gently used clothing, a mailing address, computer and phone access in a caring and supportive environment. Each day the lives of our homeless are positively impacted because they are able to have access to this incredible program.
The purpose of the Coffee Shop is to support clients through mental health referrals, case management services, assisting with housing readiness and for more than 30 individuals, the transition from homelessness to supportive housing.
The Coffee Shop is open 5 days a week from 8:00 am – 1:00 pm and currently serves 50-60 individuals each day!
Because of YOU we surpassed our goal by more than $2,500 – and raised almost $5,000 for this amazing program!
We want to thank WEDU Public Media, Community Foundation of Tampa Bay, and Allison Kropff (Anchor with 10News WTSP) for allowing us the opportunity to share the incredible impact this program is having supporting our community's homeless.
We want to give a special THANK YOU shout out to our incredible homeless services team whose passion and commitment to improve the quality of life for our community’s homeless is so inspiring.
