Welcome to I Am Hope Cafe

The mission of I Am HOPE Café is to use a faith-based approach to meet the health, recovery, and independence needs of the homeless, hungry and needy population of the community in Hillsborough County, while striving to serve all with dignity, respect and grace.


Greater Brandon Ecumenical Ministries (GBEM) is an inter-denominational Judeo-Christian faith-based ministry. In our efforts to bring self-sufficiency to those in need, we stress selfless service, unconditional love, and treating others with dignity. All of GBEM’s board, staff and volunteers will reflect our Judeo-Christian love, character and principles.
We are partnering with Metropolitan Ministries to accomplish our more immediate needs and goals; to feed and clothe the homeless and needy on a regular, ongoing basis.


Our longer-range goals are to partner with the Homeless Coalition of Hillsborough County as well as other faith-based and secular social service organizations to provide the help needed for that person or family to learn, change and provide for themselves.

Will you join with us to help the homeless and needy population in Hillsborough County?

How can you help?
