A Need to Expand

After 24 years of providing transitional housing for homeless families at our Downtown facility, there was a need for us to expand. The George W. Jenkins Community of Hope is a 49-acre community development, designed as a family-friendly neighborhood to help struggling families overcome their circumstances and rebuild their lives.

This bold initiative created one campus where quality programming can be provided in a safe, encouraging neighborhood to assist families facing the crisis of homelessness.

We need friends like you to help support our efforts to improve the quality of lives for these struggling families. Join us in helping change the lives of these parents and create a long-lasting change in the lives of their children which will continue on through future generations.

How about giving the gift of hope to help a homeless family regain independence?
