Mission Statement

To be the bridge that connects the Indian Community with the Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office to serve, protect, and defend the community, while preserving the rights and dignity of all.

An individual had a vision to help our conservative culture and create opportunities for others to service this local community. Dr. Vipul Kabaria took his passion and transformed it into reality where he incorporated the Counsel in June 2014. The organization is classified as public charities and is exempt under IRC Section 501 (c) (3). Since then the organization has participated in various activities to build goodwill and better friendship, promote literacy and create awareness on resources available in our county.

Our Community Involvement

Past Events

This year has been unique for us but we were able to join other organizations to make a difference in our local community. In January we were able to connect with other Indian organizations to celebrate India’s Republic day in Tampa FL. In February we partnered with HCSO at the FL State fair grounds to provide safe environment for our youths and families. In May we were honored to company the Hispanic counsel in feeding Tampa Bay. We showed appreciation to our frontline workers and provided dinner to detention deputies. We are proud to announce that we were also recipient of HSCO Community grant and this year we will be able to add additional school supplies for our students at one of our local elementary school. Despite the current situation we continue to meet over zoom and plan events with caution. We would love to add few new members to our team.
