Student volunteers from the Motion Palpation Club at National University’s Florida campus volunteered for lunch duty at “Pinellas Hope,” serving hot meals to over 200 people.
Pinellas Hope is a temporary emergency shelter for over 250 homeless men and women, located in Clearwater, FL, on 20 acres provided by Bishop Robert N. Lynch and the Diocese of St. Petersburg. It opened its doors on December 1, 2007. Case managers meet with residents on a regular basis to set goals towards self-sufficiency. They also assist the residents with job and housing placement and perform follow up visits with them six months after they leave the shelter.
