Join our Justice Works! Campaign and help root out the inequities that keep people in poverty.

This three-year effort seeks to raise the critical funds needed to sustain and grow our programs. Your support of the Justice Works! Campaign will enable us to sustain and expand our services to foster a thriving community of empowered citizens. Your three-year pledge commitment will be recognized with your name by giving level on the Hall of Justice in our Ybor office, on our website, and in our annual report.

The opposite of poverty is not wealth; the opposite of poverty is justice.”
