Metropolitan Ministries AmeriCorps
 
 
 
Metropolitan Ministries’ mission is to care for the homeless and those at risk of becoming homeless in our community through services that alleviate suffering, promote dignity, and instill self-sufficiency…as an expression of the ongoing ministry of Jesus Christ. MM does not proselytize and serves all who are in need. MM is committed to providing services to prevent homelessness, ease hunger and offer homeless persons life-changing solutions leading to self-sufficiency. Transitional housing and Emergency Shelter is provided to 92 families and 15 single women nightly. MM emphasizes housing and employment programs to help families successfully navigate the transition from homelessness to contributing members of the community. MM also provides early childhood education, after-school care, and supports a K-5 Hillsborough Co. Partnership School on campus. Additionally, 2,000 daily meals are prepared by MM’s kitchen staff and distributed to individuals and families at 29 community partner locations throughout the Tampa Bay region. In response to the lack of health, housing, and other resources accessible to homeless individuals, the AmeriCorps Mobile Outreach Team will meet people where they are in the community to connect them to basic services such as medical care, clothing, food and shelter. AmeriCorps members will be working to provide a pathway to housing for the Tampa Bay Community’s most vulnerable residents. Members will meet people where they are–geographically, emotionally, and physically- with the goal of moving them towards improved housing and health outcomes. The AmeriCorps Systems Navigator will engage individuals experiencing homelessness and assist them in accessing health, housing and social services.
