Neighborhood of Hope
We would like to recognize a vision that has come to fruition by one of our local churches. “Neighborhood of Hope”, designed to help families in need of housing was built by Pleasant Grove Baptist to provide a safe space for families to live while their lives are being rebuilt. When families have been removed from their homes by fire, flood and other various situations the church has always been eager to help even if the reach was limited. Now, with the newly developed neighborhood the church can further their reach by warmly hosting families and taking the burden of shelter off their plates.
When a family or individual arrives, they are interviewed and given clothes and basic necessities. The church ensures the correct paperwork is completed and hopefully move the family in within a day. Residents then sign a week to week agreement to care for the home and, based on income, would pay a weekly reimbursement fee for electricity.
