Our Mission

Project Return is dedicated to improving the quality of life for people recovering from mental illness through the Center for Lifelong Education, Training, and Development so that they may live productive and fulfilling lives in the community.

Our Services

We offer a menu of services individuals can choose from including educational classes, social activities, skill-building, personal enrichment opportunities, and access to other community resources all at one convenient location. 

Our Information

We strive to provide easy access to information about our services, agency, staff members. Find all the information you need with our Quick Links.

Our Funders

The generosity of philanthropic supporters is the only way we can meet Project Return’s current needs and continue to go above and beyond the scope of what would be possible for our members if we solely relied on government funding. This means YOU can help provide our members with the resources they need to create a plan to achieve their life outcomes by making a donation.  Project Return is funded in part by Central Florida Behavioral Health Network and donations from individuals, corporations, and foundations.

COVID-19 UPDATE -RESUMING NORMAL OPERATIONS-NEW TRANSPORTATION REQUIREMENTS

Dear Members, Staff, and Friends of Project Return:

We are delighted to announce that effective April 4, 2022, Project Return will be resuming normal operations.  All members will be able to attend Project Return as they wish.

Sunshine Line, like many other industries, is feeling the impact of worker shortages. 

As much as Sunshine Line wants to accommodate our members,  pick-ups are not guaranteed.  Project Return will be required to provide a list to Sunshine Line with the number of days that the member will be planning to attend.  Please note that Sunshine Line will not be fully functional on April 4.  Project Return will continue to work closely with Sunshine Line to get back to regular operations as soon as possible. 

Please note, after the initial van scheduling is set by Project Return, members or their caregivers will be required to notify Sunshine Line directly of any changes or cancellations for pick-up.

The safety and well-being of our members, staff, and guests remains our highest priority.  Keeping this in mind, regardless of vaccination status, masks will be strongly encouraged in accordance with current Hillsborough County guidelines.  Social distancing will be maintained as much as possible.

Please DO NOT attend if you are sick, or experiencing flu-like symptoms/symptoms of COVID-19.  You will not be allowed to enter.  Members will have to be picked up. If a member becomes ill while at the Center, a mask will be mandatory.  The member will be isolated until pick-up.

We will continue to closely monitor the COVID-19 situation.

As always, we are here to serve our members.   We are looking forward to taking the next step towards returning to normal operations.
