Hope Force testimonial headshot #1

"I came with a lot of fear. Fear of trying, I hardly spoke any English. They helped me in every way possible. People told me ugly things about shelters, but upon entering I discovered that Metropolitan Ministries was different. I have been very happy that I had a place where I could feel safe and that nothing bad was going to happen to me."

Hope Force testimonial headshot #2

"I got safe shelter, I’ve got constant contact with multiple people, supervisor, case manager, employment specialist. I’ve met the team from the stable housing program all through video chat. I’m just motivated and I just put my faith and God and prayed on it and it happened. My kids are my life. My goal is to be a homeowner and a good example for my girls."

Help us turn things around.

Together, we can alleviate suffering and promote dignity, so more individuals and families in Tampa Bay can live self-sufficient, fulfilling lives.
