Jesus is right here in our county, in our communities, in our neighborhoods. He sees the elderly struggling on a fixed income, those who have lost their jobs, and the children without the security of knowing from where their next meal is coming, and He Cares.
We help meet those needs in a variety of ways:
Food Pantry provides food to more than 2,400 families annually. Families who qualify for assistance can receive a generous food allotment up to three times annually.
Emergency Financial Assistance helps with rent, electric and water bills, plus other crucial expenses for those experiencing a financial crisis.
Spiritual Ministries provides for peoples spiritual needs by listening, praying and caring for the whole person. It is in this all-encompassing approach to benevolence that is the key to He Cares.
Will You Care?
The need is great but together we can make a tangible difference to the homeless and needy in Pinellas County.
There are four ways that you can become involved:
Give of Your Time:
Give of Your Finances: We would love to help everyone who comes in with a financial crisis but we are limited by our financial resources. Your gift can enable the electricity to be turned back on or the water service to continue for those who have nowhere else to turn.
Pray: Giving people food, clothes or money may help temporarily, but making a permanent difference in people's lives can only be accomplished through prayer.
