The Bautista Project Inc. is a nonprofit organization that serves the homeless population in Tampa, Florida. Having been homeless herself at one point in her life, Co-Founder Marla Bautista is dedicated to improving the lives of those who need it most, including at risk youths as well as local veterans. However, The Bautista Project Inc. needs a brick and mortor location where the most vulnerable can have easy accessability to the help they need.
We are raising funds to purchase an office building in downtown Tampa, to provide a location for The Bautista Project Inc.'s main assistance program, "You Belong". "You Belong" is an academic program created to help homeless individuals learn new skills, become employment-ready, and assisting homeless community members in getting the mental health and emotional support they need to thrive. For this program, we would need classroom and administrative space, access to the internet and an area dedicated to PO Boxes, so participants can claim an address.
While essentials like four walls, air conditioning and internet may go unnoticed to the general population, there are tens of thousands of Americans, children and veterans who struggle without.
Donate today to give them access to a better life.
