We want to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you find access to shelter. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know the most effective ways to contribute.

THHI is the lead agency for the Tampa/Hillsborough County (homeless) Continuum of Care. We work with various stakeholders - service providers, govermental entities, faith based, businesses and citizens - to build collobartions to end homelessness in Hillsborough County. We strive to:

coordinate federal, state and local resources for homeless housing and services in Hillsborough County.
advocate on behalf of homeless people for local, state and federal legislation and funding that will have a positive impact on our homeless neighbors, and maintain, expand and/or establish programs and funding to meet their needs.
educate the public about homelessness by dispelling the myths and misperceptions about people who are homeless, their needs and how people can help their homeless neighbors.
Through these efforts we focus on accomplishing the goals set forth in community developed plans, and assist the community in implementing long-term and best practice solutions to meet the housing and supportive service needs of homeless men, women and children living in Hillsborough County.
