Portico Workforce Housing Solutions

Mission: mobilize local Christian churches and their trained members to transform the lives of single men struggling with homelessness and our Tampa community, in the Name of Christ

Announcing $100,000 Challenge Matching Donation: your 2018 donation will be matched $ for $ up to $100,000 by 12/31/2018.

In July 2018, our $50,000 2017 donor blessed Love INC again with this 12/31/18 $100,000 challenge matching donation. If we can match $ for $ to the maximum, this $200,000 blessing allows us to retire a $30,000 note from our 5/2018 $100,000 Yukon home and purchase a multi-unit (10-20 units) building to expand and scale our homeless men’s housing program. Executive Overview: homeless; not hopeless. Challenge: single, qualified, employed men struggling with homelessness, attempting to enter the workforce have extreme challenges trying to get off the street.

• Tampa agency programming, offering single men’s programs including housing has not existed since mid-1980s.
• Starting salaries of our tenants are typically minimum wage.
• These men often have prior financial commitments, such as child support payments, suspended driver’s license charges, or drug recovery treatment charges.
• A typical apartment requires a down payment equal to at least two month’s rent.
• Critical, wrap-around support services are required.

These access obstacles for affordable housing make it almost impossible for these men to transform to self-sufficiency. Can Love INC and our mobilized faith communities help address this bridge housing gap? Solution: Portico Workforce Housing Solutions Your help: we have an extensive list of motivated, single men seeking the same opportunity. We need resources to expand the program. If our program; unduplicated, affordable bridge housing with accountability, resonates in your heart of what you seek in a nonprofit undertaking, please consider joining our faith journey by investing in our Initiative allowing us to buy another multi-unit building. We have a $100,000 matching donation until 12/31/2018 to assemble funds for our next purchase Help us assist qualified, motivated, employed men who are serious about restoring their dignity and improving our community.
