Metropolitan Ministries Dedicates New Buildings for Homeless This Week

Metropolitan Ministries dedicates MiraclePlace on Thursday, Oct. 22 with a ribbon-cutting ceremony from 10:45 a.m. – 11:30 a.m. MM officials say it is one of the crowning achievements in the 43-year history of Metropolitan Ministries.  MiraclePlace will provide 100 families and 250 children a home where they can work toward being self-sufficient. MiraclePlace is located at 165 E. Frances Avenue, Tampa, Florida 33602. The event also will include networking and tours.

Since MiraclePlace was expanded, the Ministries has been able to reach 5 times more homeless people and families in the community. MM also has seen a 540 percent increase in the families served and a 356 percent increase in space on its campus, according to Shawn La Fata, MM’s Associate Director of Communcations. Metropolitan Ministries is a non-profit, non-denominational, faith-based organization.

Several dignitaries, including Metropolitan Ministries’ Board Chair Robert Shimberg, MiraclePlace Vice Chair Andy May, and MiraclePlace Capital Campaign Chair Dr. Martin Silbiger and Metropolitan Ministries’ children will be there to cut the ribbon that will wrap around the MiraclePlace courtyard.

Thursday’s dedication is part of Hope is in Bloom Week.  It’s a six-day celebration to dedicate new buildings and recognize contributors to Metropolitan Ministries’ success.
