Resource Center Agency Aimed at Helping Homeless Opens in Pasco Plaza By Sarah Blazonis Pasco County PUBLISHED February 5, 2019 @8:25 AM


NEW PORT RICHEY, Fla. — The Hope Resource Center plans to hold a ribbon cutting to officially mark its arrival in a small plaza on Moon Lake Road. It joins a thrift store, soup kitchen, and laundromat aimed at helping the homeless and those in need.



New Resource Center agency aimed at helping homeless Agency now set up in plaze on Moon Lake Road Center provides services for people in need.

“We’re not giving a hand out – we’re giving a hand up,” said Fresh Start for Pasco Founder Jan Martini. “So, people that come here don’t think that they’re just getting everything for free – they don’t. We work with people who truly want that hand up.”

The center provides a number of services and works with agencies throughout the county that hold rotating business hours in the center’s space. Representatives can assist in several ways, including helping those who are uninsured or underinsured in the wake of a disaster, connecting people to veterans services, and helping those struggling with back rent payments.



For Army veteran David Rhodes and his wife, Lisa Montanaz, the center was a way out of homelessness. Rhodes said he and Montanaz first came to the plaza years ago to help out at The Volunteer Way’s soup kitchen. “Over time, we began to depend on the meals that were served here everyday,” Rhodes said. “Eventually, when she went blind, I was unable to work, so I had to care for her, and we eventually lost our place.” According to Rhodes, the two lived in a tent behind the plaza for more than a year. Then, the resource center found help for them through the Society of St. Vincent de Paul. The couple moved into their new home this weekend. “Totally 180 turnaround,” said Rhodes of impact the move has had.



Martini said the center isn’t just for the homeless. “There are fewer homeless people here than a lot of people think. A lot of people that come here, they have homes or there’s maybe two or three families living in a home together just to make ends meet, and this is where they come because they need food,” Martini said, referring to the soup kitchen. “They needed that extra, little help, and the resource center is bringing out even more help to kind of help put the pieces back together for these people.”



The Hope Resource Center is open during the week from 9 a.m. – 2 p.m. Martini said appointments later than 2 p.m. can be scheduled as needed.
