Homeless Emergency Project, Inc. (HEP) - Clearwater , FL

HEP is a registered 501 (c)(3) charitable organization. Our mission is to provide homeless and very low-income individuals and families with housing, food, clothing, and support services necessary to obtain self-sufficiency and improved quality of life.

As one of the oldest and largest providers of housing and support services to the homeless in Pinellas County, HEP has been helping to build hope and transforming the lives of families and individuals who are homeless since 1986.


At HEP we offer an array of services to empower homeless individuals and families to end their cycle of homelessness, increase self-sufficiency, and improve health outcomes.

We provide 300 beds of supportive housing: emergency and transitional housing for the temporarily homeless and permanent supportive housing for disabled individuals and families.

According to the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development, supportive housing is proven to have powerful impacts, ending chronic homelessness for individuals who may also be living with a disability, mental illness, or an addiction.

Supportive housing benefits people who shuffle between shelters, the streets, and hospital emergency rooms and gives them the tools needed to become self-sustaining. Supportive housing saves public funds and helps to end the vicious cycle of homelessness.
