Tampa Family Resources Inc. is a 501C3 non-profit, non-denominational, charitable organization founded in 2008 with a vision to provide faith-based biblical Counseling, Life Coaching, and Chaplaincy services for individuals, couples, families, and businesses. Our counseling and life coaching services are available in-person, by phone and online. Our businesses package is called a Corporate Support Team (CST) and includes chaplaincy, life coaching and counseling. Since employees often bring their emotional baggage into work with them, we have found that businesses are only as healthy and productive as the employees working there. Tampa Family Resources business services enhance productivity in the workplace by encouraging, educating, and empowering employees to be the best they can be at work and at home.
Here’s some more about our team . . .
