Hyundai of Wesley Chapel Community Involvement
Hyundai Hope Unit Naming Celebration
On Tuesday, August 25, Hyundai Motor America will be recognized by St. Joseph’s Children’s Hospital as the single largest donor to its children’s oncology program with the naming of the 2nd floor of a patient wing currently under construction. The floor will be named the Hyundai Hope Unit.
“With their most recent gift of $50,000, the Suncoast Hyundai Dealers and Hyundai’s Hope on Wheels program, have contributed nearly $1 million to the St. Joseph’s Children’s Hospital Foundation, improving the lives of children and their families in the Tampa Bay area,” said Kimberly Guy, President of St. Joseph’s Children’s Hospital. “We are proud to be associated with a partner so committed to ending childhood cancer.”
Through their Hope on Wheels program, Hyundai has been helping children fight this disease through funding life-saving research and innovative treatments since 1998.
The Hyundai Hope Unit, is a child-friendly inpatient unit offering large, colorful rooms where specially trained pediatric oncology nurses provide around-the-clock care to our young cancer patients. St. Joseph’s Children’s Hospital offers a vast array of treatment options for children and young adults with cancer and blood disorders designed to give accurate diagnoses and effective treatments for each health condition. Patients also benefit from our breadth of pediatric subspecialty resources – intensivists, neurologists, orthopedists, diagnostic imaging specialists, pathologists, and child life specialists – that allow St. Joseph’s to provide truly holistic, comprehensive cancer care.
Comprised of 22 private inpatient rooms, the Hyundai Hope Unit is part of a $50 million, multi-year building plan to prepare St. Joseph’s Children’s Hospital to care for kids, from newborns to teenagers, today, and for generations to come. The new children’s wing is a 3-story renovation of a building adjacent to the Children’s Hospital. The Unit opens to patients on August 25, and the new wing is expected to be completed by the end of 2015.

‘Miracles for Pasco’ Ground Breaking on January 26, 2015 at 8:30 a.m.
Metropolitan Ministries Pasco - 3214 US Highway 19, Holiday, FL 34691
In 2013 Metropolitan Ministries developed and built Miracle Place® providing safe and dignified temporary housing for 100 homeless families and more than 250 homeless children of all ages. They also needed counseling and a community that they could call their own.
Since July 2014 more than 700 families in Pasco have reached out to Metropolitan Ministries for a housing solution. Soon these homeless families will have a safe haven modeled after MiraclePlace® in ‘Miracles for Pasco’—24 new supportive housing units for homeless families with children. Comprehensive programs will include: intensive case management, employment services, job training, children’s educational services, financial wellness and housing services to ensure long-term stability.
Metropolitan Ministries President and CEO Tim Marks said “This is a critical response to the crisis of family homelessness in Pasco. Up until now, all we could offer these families were basic resources. Now we will be able to offer them a safe place to call home, hot meals, and evidence-based practices in case management leading them to self-sufficiency.”
State lawmakers awarded a $1 million dollar grant and Pasco County earmarked $600,000 for the ‘Miracles in Pasco’ project out of federal Community Development Block Grant funds. This is enough funding for 12 units. Metropolitan Ministries’ goal is to raise $2 million for building the additional 12 units. Two corporate leaders have each pledged to match gifts up to $250,000 tripling every dollar donated.
Pasco County Administrator Michele Baker, Commissioner Kathryn Starkey, Representative Amanda Murphy, Senator Wilton Simpson, and Senator Mike Fasano are among the dignitaries expected to attend the ground breaking ceremony along with Metropolitan Ministries’ board member and CEO of Hyundai New Port Richey, Scott Fink.
The 24 new unit complex will enclose 8,730 square feet on half an acre. Below is a list of specific spaces:
- Family Resource Center
- Community Rooms
- New Dining Hall (opened in September of 2014)
Since July 2014, we have received 762 requests for help with housing in Pasco. As the epidemic of poverty and homelessness becomes even greater, so does the need to do more. In response to this need, we are building Miracles for Pasco…a place where families can get back on their feet and change the trajectory of their lives.
Please join us as state, county, corporate and faith community leaders come together to celebrate HOPE for Pasco families.
