The Pinellas County Homeless Leadership Board (HLB) is the lead agency designated by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) for the homeless Continuum of Care (CoC) in Pinellas County. HLB's primary role is to bring federal and state funding to CoC organizations that provide shelter, permanent housing, and supportive services to families and individuals experiencing homelessness. 


In addition to channeling grant funding to providers of services, the HLB

  • coordinates the Annual Point in Time (PIT) Count, recruiting, organizing and deploying over 300 community volunteers each January to conduct surveys of people who are experiencing homelessness.
  • facilitates and staffs the Youth Action Board (YAB), a group of 16- to 24-year-olds, who have experienced unstable housing during their young lives. The YAB, with the assistance of HLB staff, work to improve Pinellas County's response to the needs of youth currently experiencing homelessness.
  • provides effective diversion strategies that keep families and individuals from imminent homelessness.


HLB relies on your donations to 

  • purchase incentives such as bus passes to say "thank you" to those sharing information about their circumstances for the PIT Count.
  • provide meals, hygiene kits, and transportation to struggling YAB members who devote their time and energy to helping other youth experiencing housing instability.
  • pay for small financial interventions to divert families and individuals from shelters when they are better served by keeping them housed.
  • help to defray the costs of running cold night shelters.
  • help cover costs for printing  the Homeless Resource Guide.
