Adopt a House Program

Adopt A House Program

In addition to the housing located on HEP’s 8-acre campus, we also have several single-family homes located in the surrounding community. These homes serve as quiet respite and refuge for individuals, families and veterans who struggle with homelessness.

Most of HEP’s offsite housing dates back to the 1920’s, and like most older homes, are in regular need of repair and updates. Through HEP’s Adopt a House Program, individuals and businesses throughout the Tampa Bay Area are invited to fundraise for necessary repairs, and are encouraged to volunteer with renovation projects including construction demo, painting, moving furniture, removing/replacing flooring and much more!

To find out how you can “Adopt a House”, and provide volunteer service during renovations, please contact Ashley Lowery, Director of Communications & Development at 727.442.9041 ext: 126, or ashleyl@HEPempowers.org
