This is a below poverty level area in the city of Tampa, where many families
struggle due to lack of job opportunities and lack of education. The schools in this
area are rated C&F by the State of Florida. The lack of available tutors and mentors
to help struggling students do well on the State tests is a major concern.
A majority of the parents work at night, many young children are left home by
themselves in neighborhoods where there is little to no supervision or security.
We are accepting contributions to open up a day care and after-school care
facilities, that can house tutoring and mentoring programs, as well as summer
camp. This will take the pressure off the parents who are classified as the "working
poor" and desperate to educate their children.
We provide services to the North Tampa Area. Donations are welcome. We are
focusing on education within the family as the beginning of change. Self-worth is the
first step towards the path to a better life.
Our goals include sponsoring a resource center for the community. We provide
financial support on a monthly basis. Shelter when needed.
We are asking for a one-time or continuing monetary contribution to help us meet
the needs of the North Tampa Area. Your donation is tax-deductible ; a receipt will
be mailed to you within 30 days. For more information, please contact Minister
Sherry Farley in writing at Tampa Bay Outreach Ministry, 1417 East Holland Street
, FL 33612 or via email at ministryofspirit.org. Thank you in advance for your
support and generosity.
