Description: We operate 24/7/365, we operate on a first come firsts serve basis. We have a capacity of 132 shelter beds, although this is broken down by several programs.

We do not have a waitlist or call ahead list, we do not take reservations. We do not charge, ever. We are not a 1 night shelter, we offer a homeless program to assist with individuals getting from the streets to their feet.

We offer Case Management, meals, shelter, job assistance, insurance assistance, Social Security Assistance. All services are if applicable.

The old practice was set up by forming a line and accepting all persons we could hold. We no longer offer 5 nights for free as we no longer require any form of payment. Our phone number is 813-549-0641.

Each homeless individual seeking shelter may come to our location, should a bed be available. Only an ID is required for occupancy. Should an individual not have an ID, we can work with them to obtain one.

We do run a Sex Offender Background Search prior to admission into our program.
