GTBACP 2019 Charity Drive

ACP has selected Pinellas Hope as our Charity for 2019. Donations can start to be accepted at any upcoming meeting or brought to our Luncheon at Brio on Wednesday, November 13. Jennifer Sack will help collect and deliver items to Pinellas Hope.

Pinellas Hope started out as a temporary emergency shelter for over 250 homeless men and women, located in Clearwater on 20 acres provided by Bishop Robert N. Lynch and the Diocese of St. Petersburg. It opened its doors on December 1, 2007. Background checks are done on all the residents and case managers meet with them on a regular basis to set goals towards self-sufficiency. They also assist the residents with job and housing placement and perform follow up visits with them six months after they leave the shelter.

Since this early beginning, Pinellas Hope has added numerous buildings (education, clothing closet, medical respite care in partnership with BayCare) and services to its campus, including a Common/Community open-air pavilion with attached (warming) kitchen, offices, separate men’s and women’s bathrooms, including showers, laundry room, library, and computer room.

In 2015 Pinellas Hope added 5 apartment buildings providing 76 efficiency apartments subsidized to be affordable for low income adults who had “graduated” from Pinellas Hope.

Eighty more units were added in 2017, bringing the total number of efficiency apartments to 156. These units are known as permanent supportive housing as the residents still receive case management support and support services as needed. They are not, however, provided meals as each unit has its own kitchenette.

Donation items they need for the winter months include:

Sweatshirts and Sweatpants for men and women

Long sleeve shirts for men and women (greater need for men than women)

Winter hats for men and women

Fleece Blankets

Underpants/Socks for men and women

Target Gift cards for Tents (They have been purchasing tents at and they typically retail for $89.99/each, they last, on average, 60-90 days. Any gift cards collected we will use to help purchase tents.)

It gets chilly in the tents during the cooler months, so warm items are so very appreciated and tents are needed and used all year long.
