Our Vision for Tomorrow
This year marks an exciting new chapter in the mission: We are nearing completion of our brand new, 70-unit housing and community learning center at the base of Hope Road. It will eventually house 500 men, women and children, giving many, for the first time, true sheltered homes with running water, electricity, and modern appliances.
The center represents much more than just modern shelter, however. It is a transformative place, providing the physical, educational, emotional and spiritual support to families to become independent and self-sufficient.
Our first year will be our pilot program: Our most independent families will be the first residents. They’ll learn the responsibilities of maintaining their homes, and the center in general, and they’ll be the leaders and teachers as we fill all units over the next 9-12 months.
We envision the housing and community center, ultimately, as a transitional place. The final phase our work is to help the most successful families purchase their own land and homes, beyond the mission and the Hope neighborhood. We hope they, in turn, will become the mission’s mentors and teaches, helping other families break the cycle of poverty.
