I can't fully express how wonderful it is to take a client by the hand and walk them no more than a couple hundred feet from our office to another agency that can help them when they are in crisis.
Mission: to alleviate pain and suffering, in a spirit of charity, justice and mercy through person to person involvement.
Vision: rooted in the belief in the dignity of all people, they strive to harness the power of the human spirit to end homelessness, alleviate poverty and improve the quality of life in the community.
The Suncoast Rapid Rehousing Program (RRH) was created to provide a pathway to permanent housing for those who are experiencing chronic homelessness. It is a housing first program which means the program is low barrier. They believe that a person that is experiencing homelessness is ready for housing now. There should be no prerequisites. Their philosophy is to meet the clients were they are at. Case management, support, job preparation, and many other services can be ‘wrapped around’ that person once they are housed.
St. Vincent de Paul CARES abides by the 1byOne Coordinated Entry system, which means clients are referred to them to ensure they serve the highest acuity of clients. To achieve this, they work closely with the Suncoast Partnership to End Homelessness, and the various access points in the continuum.
Their goal is to make homelessness brief, one time, and non-recurring.

The Glasser/Schoenbaum Human Services Center empowers non-profits to closely network with other agencies and create synergistic energy towards the life changing opportunities we all want for our clients and those in our community.
Real estate is one of the greatest costs in a business budget. Our partnership with the Glasser Schoenbaum Human Services Center allows more money to go towards our mission. And what better place to house our office than on a campus with nineteen other outreach agencies.
We are a small and young organization and having the ability to network and partner with other community organizations is key to the quality and impact of our work. In addition to the affordable space that The Glasser/Schoenbaum Human Services Center provides to all of us, it inspires us to use this collaborative model as we work to empower our students and their families.
As a small organization with a staff of two, employee safety was a big consideration when we were looking for office space. We did not want our employees to be in a place where they were alone. Being on the GSHSC campus has been great because there is a whole community of like-minded professionals.
