Home Makers of Hope

Providing basic essential furnishings and household items to families stuggling with poverty.

Because no child should have to sleep on the floor

Ordinary people doing extraordinary work of mercy


This new ministry needs some manpower and young adults or high schoolers needing service hours. We need volunteers on Monday mornings in Ybor City to help deliver household furnishings to a family in need or Saturday mornings to meet at St. Paul and help pick up donated items.

If you can commit once or twice a month that is great!


Requested donations we gratefully accept include: mattresses, bedding, linens, sofas, lamps, tables, kitchen items, dish sets, pots and pans, furniture, pictures and chairs.

Financial donations are always needed and grately appreciated.  We are a 100% volunteer organization so 100% of your donations support our ministry.  Your financial support helps us with warehouse rent and utilities, gas for our trucks and new pillows and beds for our families.  We accept all major credit cards.  To donate please CLICK HERE

If you can help or donate items please contact Deacon Frank Henriquez in the Parish Office at 813-961-3023;FHenriquez@stpaulchurch.com

Making a Home

For families facing insufferable hardships and those transitioning out of homelessness; after the expenses of food, rent, and utilities, there is ofthen nothing left to purchase basic essential furnishings that most of us take for granted.  We make a home for these families by providing beds and linens to sleep in, decorated living areas to spend family time, and fully equipped kitchens to share a meal together.


The Prayer of

St. Teresa of Avila


God has no body but yours.

No hands but yours,

No feet but yours,

Yours are the eyes with which 

he looks on the world with compassion.

Yours the feet with which he walks to do good.

Yours the hands through which he blesses all the world.

Yours are the hands, 

yours are the feet,

yours are the eyes,

you are his body

he now has to bless us.

Christ has no body now on

earth but yours.
