Looking Ahead at 2021
Updated: Jan 23
We’re looking forward to a great year serving those who are doing the work to rebuild their life. Check out the ways we’re partnering with these individuals and see how you might be able to get involved this year!
H2H assists families to transition from the recovery institution to a home by furnishing their apartment and providing relational support with mentors, life coaches, & prayer partners. We also offer House2Home recipients free access to a professional counselor. This year we will be focusing on expansion by serving additional organizations who have graduates transitioning into housing as well as recruiting and training new teams from churches and companies to be move-in agents. We also want to expand to provide additional services for these families including ongoing counseling, relational support teams, basic Christian discipleship, life skills training, and practical assistance (grocery assistance, transportation, emergency funds for car repair, educational support). We will also be offering training to those interested in developing relationships with these mom and dads through periodic zoom meetings and videos.
