TECO Collaboration Advances HOPE Cottages Project for Tampa’s Needy

The HOPE cottages in Tampa have taken a step closer to becoming an additional temporary housing choice for those who require assistance.

Thanks to the efforts of the Catholic Charities Diocese of St. Petersburg, these cottages will be situated near the tent city established at Tampa HOPE.

Presently, ninety-nine homes have been constructed and are awaiting TECO’s arrival to commence the electrical installation.

This process is projected to last from four to six weeks. Following TECO’s completion of the electrical work, the homes will be equipped with electricity, and the process of relocating people will commence.

Each cottage has the capacity to accommodate two individuals, and once properly secured, they are designed to endure a category-five hurricane.

Lou Ricard, the Director of Marketing and Donor Relations, expressed optimism about the timeline, stating, “We are aiming for completion by the end of the year.

It would be a heartwarming and wonderful narrative, allowing people to move in just in time for Christmas.”

The organization consistently requires donations, ranging from cleaning supplies to meals. For those interested in contributing, more details can be found on their website or by texting “MERCY” to 91999.
