Construction Begins ON PHP'S HEADQUARTERS

The building at 1396 Kass Circle soon will house Hernando County's only Community Resource Center (CRC) and PHP's permanent headquarters, if all goes well.

The County has approved the project and issued the necessary construction permits. The Sheriff’s Department donated inmate labor to demolish the building’s interior. PHP has hired a general contractor who cut he concrete and is installing plumbing to tie the proposed kitchen and restrooms into the sewer system. Currently, the building is an empty shell that needs the entire interior rebuilt. 

Since the property was purchased in 2015, PHP has conducted numerous fundraisers for construction, raising over $300,000, but still lacks over $75,000 to complete the project.  To complete this project, PHP will need additional cash, donations or discounts of equipment, supplies, materials and labor.  

When completed, this site will allow PHP to continue its outreach programs and broaden its assistance to those who are hungry, impoverished and lack necessities for successful living.  The CRC will provide a place where an impoverished individual can get a bite to eat, take a shower, receive a clean change of clothes and then be referred to agencies in our area. In short, the CRC on Kass Circle will provide:

  • Resources to address hunger, poverty, unemployment in Hernando County
  • A “hand-up” approach to end hunger, not just a “hand-out”
  • Access to benefits, educational opportunities, job training and placement
  • Help to improve the neighborhood and the quality of life for citizens in the area
  • Expanded feeding programs to include food safety, nutrition and work experience
  • Outreach services to answer questions, provide tips, referrals, and support
  • An opportunity for people to help themselves to become productive members of society

Your tax-deductible donation of materials, supplies, or labor (or discounts of such) will help PHP continue to take a bite out of hunger in Hernando County!
