At our Resource Center, our guests can find assistance in finding housing, as well as opportunities to complete their educational goals—including attending college. We have a JobLink program that focuses heavily on developing “soft skills” that employers look for in a suitable employee. We also focus on developing vocational job skills through our own projects: Jesus Center Farm and Bloomin' Hope.
Here's a look at some of the opportunities we provide:
Housing is a crucial piece of the puzzle as we strive to inspire people to reach their full spiritual, physical, emotional and vocational wellness. We currently provide housing to nearly 60 individuals at six different sites.
Through the help of a Wal-Mart Community Grant, we have a 2.5 acre Jesus Center Farm and CSA. In addition, our Bloomin' Hope flower cart provides training opportunities for women from both our shelter & transitional housing program.
Job Link assists individuals in integrating into the community and to fulfill their employment aspirations. Participants discuss and set reasonable goals for their future in particular regard to community integration & employment.
“House of Hope at the Jesus Center gave me structure, accountability, stability, and a solid support group of women. This helped me maintain my sobriety, and tremendously encouraged me in my faith.”
