ST. PETERSBURG – Many look to the Pinellas County Urban League (PCUL) when times get a little tough. The building at 333 31st St. N serves as a beacon for those needing a helping hand when the electric is cut off or are in need of a stimulating program to keep their child off the streets.
But now, aside from offering GED classes and financial assistance, the PCUL is getting into the housing business.
“We’re excited because we’re going to make a difference in these communities as we build houses to benefit the neighborhoods,” said PCUL President & CEO Watson Haynes.
