Housing Authority of the City of Tampa's 3rd Annual 8k run to end homelessness- Homeless Lives Matter#
Homelessness has decreased in the city for some subpopulations, but there are still those in need of critical services. Please be a part of the community solution by showing your support for this worthy cause. All proceeds go directly to homeless families in our community. Funding will go towards purchasing food, clothing, household goods, security deposits, utility deposits, birth certificates, and social security cards. There are many families that have been homeless for over 10 years and without assistance, may die on the streets. We have to take a stand and make a difference.
Last year with the generous donations and participation, THA raised over $1,500 for homeless families in the community.
