Residence Profile

St. Petersburg Free Clinic is a caring organization helping to meet basic, unserved human needs through resources, volunteers and advocacy. The St. Petersburg Free Clinic provides temporary assistance for families and individuals in need of the basics of food, shelter, health care, limited financial assistance and referral information. The Beacon House provides both bridge housing for men who can be rapidly rehoused, as well as a sober living supportive environment for men who choose this housing model after 30 days of sobriety (generally these first 30 days are in a treatment program). There is one AA meeting onsite each week and recovering residents are encouraged and supported to attend meetings the rest of the week. They can get to these meetings either by bicycles provided by the program, bus (bus passes provided and facility is on bus line) or via program van. Case managers work with each resident on their own path to sobriety and independence, assisting with workforce issues, and providing work and leisure clothing, access to computers, guidance re: budgeting and financial planning and any other issues of concern to the resident. Referrals are made to other community resources as appropriate. Laundry faclities onsite. One meal a day is provided; food available for residents to prepare other meals. All residents are treated with respect and a belief that they will be successful.
