Situation

The coronavirus pandemic has caused huge waves of poverty throughout our nation. We see the biggest form of poverty as relational. People have no where to go and no one to go to. There is no longer any protection against eviction and the rates for unemployment are higher than ever. This pandemic will continue to be felt for years to come and we want to help provide people with that place to go.

Solution

Our vision over the next 5 years is to have 200 homes open and have the capacity to love 500 tenants. This is to be in partnership with support of 200 churches all across the country. This continues to fulfill our vision of 'Every Church lovingly making a house for the homeless.'

  • I came to hope into action broken and afraid, leaving domestic abuse and violence. But I left a much stronger women who was able to move forward in my life. Coming to hope into action changed my life.

  • I had several deaths of people very close to me. The bad part of my life really started. Sleeping rough in doorways. Until Hope into Action came along. It was the first time I had a key to the front door and somewhere I could call home. They put me somewhere safe. I then had hope and Hope had me.

  • I came out of the army. I couldn't settle. That was it for 30 years. Hope into Action opened new horizons for me. I had my own bedroom. My own living room. Because of the love and support I was feeling, it changed the dynamic from a house to a home. Something I've been looking for all my life.
