Be a Light Mission Service Center Inc is a faith-based, minority-owned, 501(c)(3) offering short- and long-term support to help Pasco’s low income and homeless get and stay off the street. We operate a day shelter in Hudson, Florida offering services, meals, housing referrals, and a safe haven for our neighbors in need. All of our services are free. We don’t discriminate. We only ask "Are you hungry?"
We started Memorial Day weekend 2020 handing out 20 cheeseburgers in Holiday. By word of mouth, our service area grew from Holiday to the Hernando county line. We grew from 20 sandwiches weekly to serving over 900 meals per month, with a new day center in Hudson offering free services and support helping the homeless and low income get and stay off the street. Our volunteers are play a critical role and are an integral part of our organization. As an all volunteer nonprofit, we could not exist without our volunteers.
An immediate goal is to operate mobile shower and laundry units for the homeless. There are no mobile units available in Pasco. Our target state is to implement a permanent supportive housing program to provide services and support alongside housing to reduce homelessness.
