What is Pinellas Hope?

Located at 126th Ave. North, Pinellas Park, this is a ministry of Catholic Charities of the Diocese of St. Petersburg. Pinellas Hope was founded in 2007 as a pilot for providing temporary shelter and assistance for homeless men and women.

Meals at PINELLAS HOPE are provided by parishes for the residents who are in transitional housing. Pinellas Hope assists homeless adults become self-sufficient. During this COVID pandemic, things have been different in this ministry. We have kept the kitchen crew small and deliver the meal, but no longer serve it. Like many other things in our lives, even our opportunities to volunteer have been limited. 

We need a few (4) volunteers to prep the meal with the team leaders and two volunteers to drive the meal and desserts to Pinellas Hope. If possible, parishioners are invited to donate desserts of fruits, cookies, and brownies for Pinellas Hope. Please mark on your donations that they are for Pinellas Hope. 

Prepare/Cook: 1:30 – 3:30 pm or Deliver at 4:00 pm one Sunday a month, as often as you can make it.
