What is Homeless Helping Homeless, Inc. (HHH)?
HHH is a 501(c)(3) low barrier housing provider (shelter) headquartered in Tampa, FL. HHH is just 1 of 14 peer run crisis shelters in the United States.
Since 2009, HHH’s mission is to provide housing (shelter) to the homeless who don’t have money, job, or meet the criteria for public assistance.
Hillsborough County only has a handful of shelters available. When it comes to free shelter for single men and women, the list gets even smaller. HHH provides shelter, nonjudgmental practical help, and stabilizing support in a home setting for anyone from first time homeless to Tampa's most chronic cases.
Since 2019, HHH has expanded its scope by launching Housing First. This is an approach, which gets homeless individuals off the street into permanent housing before tackling any of the client’s personal crisis.
Due to the zoning ordinance in Tampa, FL and at the risk of being shut down, HHH no longer can call itself an emergency shelter as of August 26, 2020. HHH needs to offer a longer length of stay to be in compliance with the City of Tampa ordinance.
