SLIDESHOW OF FUTURE HOMELESS CAFE
NEW HOMELESS CAFE PROJECT
Would you rather the homeless have an alternative place to go rather than being downtown? If yes, would you work with us to make this a reality?
We here at Homeless Helping Homeless, Inc. (HHH) understand the public is torn with a mixture of emotions in regard to seeing the homeless in downtown Tampa. Some are concerned with how the homeless impact business or city aesthetics. Others have a humanitarian bent and would like to do something to remedy the problem of the homeless in downtown Tampa but do not know what to do. HHH has an economically viable solution for this dilemma.
Even though HHH has been an emergency shelter provider since 2009, at one time, we had a Homeless Cafe, which was a point of refuge during the day for the homeless. This prototype Cafe, which was open from 6AM - 11PM seven days a week, consisted of the following: feeding over 3,000 people per month, showers, a laundry facility, 190 storage lockers, computers, phone fax and internet, five TVs and a pool table.
The Cafe was in existence for eighteen months. HHH had plans to build an eco-friendly Homeless Cafe site. However, unfortunately our funding source was cut short back in 2011. The Cafe closed shortly thereafter.
HHH needs funds for the preliminary stage for a new Homeless Cafe, an alternative solution for the homeless besides being downtown. First, we need you, as an Accountability Partner before moving forward. Above please find the virtual reality video presentation for the new Homeless Café.
If you donate to the Homeless Cafe Project, we would like to welcome you to be an HHH Accountability Partner. (To find out about the Accountability Partner function, click on the tab for Accountability Partner under the Future Cafe tab.)
