My dream is to solve a community problem by helping the homeless get off the street. I have been working on this project for the last two years. I have a 501c3 nonprofit that I started with $100 5 years ago. My nonprofit is called Blanket Tampa Bay. I serve the homeless in the Tampa Bay Area. For the last 5 years, I have served the homeless in the parking lot of St Peter Claver providing them with blankets, sleeping bags, tents, clothes, shoes, hygiene products of every kind. I have provided people with new wheelchairs, surgery for their dogs and come across people who have needed surgery themselves and made sure they have gotten it.
I have a burning passion for the homeless and want to make sure they are treated with respect and kindness, The Tampa Urban Rest Stop is a 45 ft container that will be a stand-alone building. The homeless will be able to take a shower, wash their clothes, and use the bathroom. I also have two staffing companies that will work to match their skills to the job instead of sending them to labor pools. I welcome any help or guidence anyone can gove.
