Pinellas Hope - Everything we do is to help shelter residents get back into the community as quickly as possible! Pinellas Hope, a program of Catholic Charities Diocese of St. Petersburg opened on 10 acres of land. It was developed as a pilot program in December 2007 and continues to provide a comprehensive array of services and shelter to homeless adult individuals. Today, Pinellas Hope continues its mission of providing a safe living environment and the necessary support for homeless adults to become self-sufficient. Since its formation, Pinellas Hope has served over 10,000 people and served over 1.6 million meals. Recently we have discovered that at least 3 or 4 residents have dogs who are their Service animals, guardians and companions. Anyone who has dog food, dry or canned, to contribute, it would be very much appreciated! Once a month, St. Anne's visits Pinellas Hope with clothing and supplies. For info, contact Beth Ramirez.
