If you’re searching for a way to give back to your community, the Catalyst’s Impact Connector is here to help. Each week, we feature five organizations in the Tampa Bay area that need your help, whether that’s time, talent, items, funding or simply awareness. We’re certain you’ll find something here that matches your interests and will positively impact the community.

Join the Citizen Forester Program

The St. Pete Citizen Forester Program was created in 2022 by the Urban Forestry Committee to plan and implement environmental stewardship projects in the city. In 2023, the Committee distributed a survey to members to ask what their top 10 program focus areas were. These focus areas will be used to develop subcommittees to focus on goal setting, planning and partnering with St. Pete Urban Forestry program implementation. St. Pete residents are encouraged to become part of the process. Sign up here.

Retired and Senior Volunteer Program

The purpose of RSVP – Retired & Senior Volunteer Program is to create meaningful opportunities for older citizens (age 55 and above) to participate more fully in the life of the community through volunteer service. The services offered by this nonprofit organization include aiding trafficking survivors, feeding the hungry, helping the homeless, improving our community, addiction recovery, ministering to those imprisoned and bringing other organizations and services in the community together for a common goal. Learn more by calling (727) 823-4101.

Enrich a child’s life

Florida Resurrection House is a nonprofit that serves families experiencing homelessness with custody of minor children living at or below the federal poverty level who reside in Pinellas, Pasco, or Hillsborough County. FRH works to end the cycle of generational poverty and build long term stability for families in the Tampa Bay area. The nonprofit is looking for a Child Enrichment Volunteer Monday and Thursdays evenings from 6:30- 7:30 p.m. Learn more about the opportunity here and sign up for a volunteer information session here.
