As of June 1, Hope Gospel Mission has made some exciting changes to its programming.
We are splitting our single two-year program into three separate programs that flow into one another. Residents will be able to make a commitment to one program at a time. This change, coupled with the culture changes we’ve been practicing for the last year, is expected to make it simpler for a new resident to enter our programs, allowing us to help more people.
The three programs are called the Stability and Foundational Education (SaFE) Program, the Work Readiness Program, and the Discipleship Transitions Program.
The first program, SaFE, focuses on education and bringing our residents up to a good standard of reading, writing, math comprehension. If needed, residents will be able to get their GED during this time.
The second program, Work Readiness, focuses on work skills. We provide job training, job coaching, resume building, references for future employment, and other useful services for our residents so that they can find good, long term employment.
The third program, Discipleship Transitions, is a transitional housing program that focuses the resident on setting a firm foundation of success for the remainder of their life after graduation.
Hope Gospel Mission has signed a lease for our first transitional house. Managed by a house manager (Josh Moore), this facility will host the residents in the Discipleship Transitions Program, where they will live semi-independently until they graduate from the program.
As always, benefits to our residents in our programs include free meals, clothing, a great living environment, caring staff and volunteer, job resources, counseling, addiction recovery, and much more.
