The goal of TransACT Hope is to see our neighbors achieve their goals and experience financial, emotional, and spiritual growth. We believe that cycles of poverty, addiction, abuse, and despair can be broken.
TransACT Hope partners with neighbors in our community who have limited resources and are working to overcome barriers hindering their growth. Whatever their struggle, we help build a community around each participant that fosters forward movement and Christ-centered transformation.
The challenges our neighbors face may be different addictions, criminal history, a pattern of broken relationships, poverty, or financial insecurity but our response is the same. TransACT Hope participants receive:
- An opportunity to know Christ – Participants are encouraged to join Bible studies and take courses offered in area churches. Classes are built on the gospel and relevant to needs such as Jobs for Life, Faith and Finances etc.
- Affordable housing – Housing costs can cripple people with limited resources. TransACT Hope provides housing at a discount based on financial circumstances. With this assistance, participants can work towards financial security and independence as they learn how to effectively manage their resources.
- A personalized care team – Initially, each participant is paired with a support partner who helps them identify goals and strengths. Together, they choose a team of people that meet regularly to support and hold the participant accountable while working toward the goals. Teams consist of friends, Christian mentors, co-workers, teachers, or people from other local programs where they already have connections.
