Congratulations to Somebody Cares Tampa Bay for 20 years of service! SCTB was the first Somebody Cares America chapter to be founded outside of Houston and now operates in Hillsborough, Pinellas, and Pasco Counties. SCTB meets the needs of these communities in several ways.
The “Somebody Cares” concept began in Houston in 1981 when a simple business card reading, “Somebody Cares, call 24 hours a day,” was distributed by founder Doug Stringer and others as they ministered to the lost on the streets of Houston.
It is proven that when individuals, churches, businesses and community leaders reach out to help their neighbors, they come alive in the process. Each person helped also becomes a tangible manifestation of God’s love and hope, proclaimed to the entire community.
