- See - Click - Fix - A web tool that allows citizens to report non-emergency neighborhood issues
- Youth Services - Youth employment programs
- Committee to Advocate for Persons with Impairments (CAPI)
- Strategic Plan to Address Homelessness
- The N-Team - Home repair assistance for the elderly, disabled or low-income homeowners
Congratulations! Volunteers once again demonstrated how much St. Petersburg cares!
