Pinellas County short term housing and shelters.

Programs can provide Pinellas County residents with several housing programs. Emergency shelters can provide a place to stay while transitional housing can usually offer residents an affordable, safe home for a shorter period of time. Non-profits and other resources are located across Saint Petersburg and Clearwater Florida.

The scope of the programs will vary widely. You will need to call to get more information, determine if a waiting list is in place, and to learn more. In general, the Pinellas County non-profit agencies will provide qualified individuals with access to long term, low income housing. Some may be government subsidized and other units are private. The programs tend to only be for those who attend job training, financial literacy workshops, and who are otherwise on the path to self-sufficiency.

Some agencies try to offer other aid too. This can include eviction prevention, funds for paying rent, meals, and basic needs. However the goal is to always prevent homelessness or assist those who are currently on the streets and need a place to live.
