State of Junior Civic Association

Today Tampa Heights Junior Civic Association is facing the challenge of providing continued services to the very needy population. The demand is high; the need is great; and funding is becoming more and more limited. The association has done a good job with its past funding. It is now in need of more funding to continue the job that it has been doing over the past years. Investment in this organization means investment in the lives of those who truly need the assistance and investment where it really makes a difference.

We would like to thank everyone for supporting the Tampa Heights Junior Civic Association's Community Center. The Community Center is a facility with over 100 years of rich history going back to the time of the establishment of the Tampa Heights Community. We want to maintain respect for our residents as the facility is close to neighbors who reside nearby to the establishment. We have adjusted the time availability to ensure we comply with the neighborhood residents request.

Please note, as of January 1st, 2017 no event time can not go past 1:00 a.m. If there is an event that goes past 11:00 p.m. security must be provided. Refusing to provide these services would potentially cancel the event due to non-compliance.

We appreciate your business, but we also have to respect our neighbors as well. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us at 813-559-1768.

Thank You,

Tampa Heights Community Center
