We are grateful to the members of Alpha Kappa Alpha, Zeta Upsilon Omega Chapter for their generous gifts to refurbish our children's room in the Bridging Families Program at the Center of Hope! They new furniture, desks, toys, computers and supplies will help so many. At present we have over 50 children staying in our facility and your gifts will help them learn and have fun during their stay with us. Thank you! #HopefortheHomeless #SVdPSP
Father Kevin Mackin OFM, a Franciscan Friar, volunteers with us every week. Our clients love his visits, his counseling and mostly his friendship. We truly value his dedication to the poor and downtrodden, we are blessed to have him as one of our volunteers!
We were so happy to welcome a visit Wednesday from Bishop Parkes from the Diocese of St. Petersburg. We were able to have a round table discussion of the issues and the successes of SVdPSP. After we gave the Bishop a walking tour of our campus. We are happy to partner with the Diocese and Catholic Churches in our area. @DOSP #HopefortheHomeless #SVdPSP
