Pinellas Hope is a temporary shelter that provides homeless men and women privacy and a safe place to leave their belongings during the day or while they are at work, and a comforting meal.
How we will LEND A HAND We will help serve dinner to the residents at Pinellas Hope. Please be flexible if we're asked to do something else!
Schedule: Saturday, January 23, 4:45pm - ~6:30pm Arrive at 4pm if you would like to learn more about and tour Pinellas Hope!
What to bring:
Other Important Information: You must have provided your information to me (have an "I" as your title) in order to sign up for an event or be cleared from the waiting list.
- Please wear comfortable, casual clothes
- Bring a jacket in case it gets cool
- Bring a bottle of water for yourself
- Please bring a warm smile!
Maybe RSVP's are not permitted for this event. Please consider this seriously before you RSVP, it is very important that we have an accurate count a couple of days in advance to provide to the organization. Last-minute drop-outs reflect badly on our organization. You may bring one child per adult. You must monitor your child at all times, and be fully responsible for them. Please note that you will bring a child (and child's age) along with your RSVP. If you are signing up for the Disney pass, you will have to coordinate with me to be able to sign up a child (it is set to 18). Lend a Hand can now approve a pass for each volunteer for the "Give a Day Get a Disney Day" program! Please follow the instructions under 'Files' if you're interested in getting a pass. You must complete the entire sign-up process with Disney and HandsOn (per the instructions) for me to be able to approve the pass. http://www.meetup.com...

! How 'Pinellas Hope' benefits our community
In December 2007 Catholic Charities formed a partnership with the inter-faith community, local government, businesses and other not-for-profit entities to open Pinellas Hope. The residents at Pinellas Hope may sleep undisturbed, take a shower, and have a comforting evening meal. There is a strict code of conduct in Pinellas Hope. The clients will be required to agree to rules associated with the shelter facility. Security/background checks will be done on every prospective resident to assure, to the best of our ability, that the clients of Pinellas Hope will be safe and secure. Individuals will not be allowed in Pinellas Hope if the presence of that individual could threaten the safety of other clients and personnel.
