Tampa Bay Buccaneers’ Shelton Quarles Reveals
Newly Renovated Unit to Shepherd’s Village Family
Home Blitz, a program of Shelton Quarles’ IMPACT Foundation
TAMPA – Tampa Bay Buccaneers’ former linebacker and current Director of Pro Scouting, Shelton Quarles, revealed a newly renovated Shepherd’s Village unit to the family who will now call it “home” on Friday afternoon.
“The Bible tells us: ‘To whom much is given, much will be required,’” said Quarles. “So, it is only fitting that we find different ways and avenues to give back to our community.”
With a mission to provide opportunities and resources for at-risk, single-parent families throughout the Tampa Bay area, Shelton Quarles’ IMPACT Foundation partnered with Shepherd’s Village to execute a new version of its Home Blitz program – Home Blitz, Shepherd’s Village Edition.
Led by Ossi Construction, Inc. contractor, Jerry Fortin, Shelton Quarles’ IMPACT Foundation renovated a Shepherd’s Village unit, including everything from tile flooring and granite kitchen countertops to impact-resistant windows and appliances.
“Having to share one bedroom with my girls for the last few months, we were so blessed to have been picked by Shepherd’s Village to receive the renovated apartment,” said April, the mother of three daughters who moved in to the new unit. “We are so excited for this new chapter.”
Shepherd’s Village provides affordable housing, services and resources to experience growth, stability and a path to self-sufficiency for single-parent families who face significant crisis and change.
“We are grateful for the IMPACT Foundation and Shelton Quarles, who has a compassionate heart for single-mother families who are struggling to overcome major life crisis and move forward in their lives,” said Shepherd’s Village Founder and Director Phyllis Alderman. “Shelton Quarles’ IMPACT Foundation has made a lasting positive influence by believing and investing in their potential. It is a second-generation blessing as the children see and believe.”
