The Impacts of Hope

Stories of Impact

 

 

“Just over four years ago I had to start over, a single mother with two kids, that was not an easy task. It would not have been possible without Transact Hope. Transact Hope gave us the opportunity to live in a new area, enabling us with a healthy environment.  After not working for a couple of years, living in a Transact home gave me the ability to “breath” and comfortably work my way back into and up in the workforce. I was able to focus on giving my children a stable home life without stressing about our living conditions. I have been fortunate to build relationships with numerous people who are either on the board or in some way affiliated with Transact, and it has greatly improved my involvement in the community. Transact Hope has helped us build a life we as a family can be proud of. Through their patience, gentle corrections and guidance, we are ready to move forward over the next year to other great opportunities.”

“TransACT Hope put a roof over our head when we had no where to go because we were broke.  They got us connected into a church that has become our home for our family.  They have been a resource on how to become a better mom and dad.  They have helped us reach small goals and are helping us reach the harder goals too. They are teaching us how to trust people something we have not come into the world trusting easily.  They have taught us in good and bad times that their love in unconditional.  Something we didn’t get a lot of in our lives.  They haven’t run away when it gets hard, they stay.  They call us out on things but they explain in a loving way and show us a better way to deal with it; how we can fix it.  We’ve been with them for a few years now.  I’m just beginning to know that what they say and do is out of love not hate.”

“The Transact hope program has greatly impacted my life. Before I was in the program I was raising 2 kids by my self, without a home, and no hope in finding one. When I got into the program they gave us a home to live in and helped me to set goals so I could better plan for my families future. When any problems would come up they would always be there for me. They would help me with my parenting, my employment, and budgeting. One of the biggest things they helped me with was my relationship with Christ. I had drifted away from him after some hard times in my childhood, but they helped me to restore that relation ship into something stronger then I could have ever imagined. Seeing people in a church truly working as Christ's body, each doing its part while caring for the others, showed me why Jesus Christ died on the cross, and how he still works through his followers. This has been a life changing experience seeing God work through his children in amazing ways. Transact hope doesn't just give you the stuff to have a loving family home, they teach you how to be a good steward of those things which builds true joy. God has brought me to a place in life I never thought I would ever be. I have been with Transact hope for one year, and in that year God has built me back to where I can now give back to others as they have given to me. I recommend the program to parents who not only want to have a home for their family, but who want to build that home on a solid foundation, a foundation for which that home will never fall. I owe them everything for taking a chance on me and will never forget that.”
