Homelessness in Manatee County:
The Facts, The Fears, The Future 
People become homeless for a variety of reasons.  As communities progress and grow, one of the expected complications is homelessness. The homeless tend to congregate in the downtown districts since most service providers are also located in the urban core.   Manatee County arguably has some of the best social service offerings in the Tampa Bay area, which may be one of the reasons we have seen a large influx of additional homeless people to our area.  Drawing from Polk, Hillsborough, Sarasota and Pinellas counties, some members of the homeless population are viewed as aggressive and less responsive, which creates challenges for business owners and the community and may be an impediment to the revitalization of Bradenton’s urban core.
Join Tiger Bay as we engage in an educational and thought-provoking discussion on this issue from multiple angles addressed by some of those on the front lines of this issue as we all work towards a productive, yet compassionate, solution.
