Did you know that as a resident at Real Recovery you can receive an exemption that covers the cost of tuition and access fees to attend St. Petersburg College? It’s true!

It gets better – the University of South Florida’s Sarasota-Manatee Campus is only a 12-minute drive from Real Recovery’s Tampa sober living location.

St. Petersburg College has something called a “Homeless Fee Exemption” program which is part of a statewide program (§ 31009.25, Fla. Stat.; 2020) to help individuals and families who want to create a better life but are experiencing less than ideal circumstances. Before you say, well I’m not homeless… well put your ego aside, remember we’re working on a program of willingness, honesty, and humility. Real Recovery is by definition “transitional housing” which means all residents meet the federal definition of “homeless.”
