PROGRAMS (specific details)
Here's what your support accomplishes in our community through the sales of the Resale Store at Philippians Place!
Our Resource Program distributes community resources and information, assists with obtaining essential items, and completes assessments to help those in need that qualify for programs both inside and outside of our organization.
We teach participants budgeting skills, life skills, and spiritual strengthening to increase their opportunity to be self-sustaining.
We do not provide financial "quick-fixes", instead, we provide the opportunity for clients to partner with a mentor to navigate through and face their obstacles.
We provide access to computers, internet, email, and other necessary technology so clients can apply or employment, housing, birth certificates, and other necessities.
We aim to provide a HAND UP, not a handout!
The earnings program is tailored to educate, equip, and encourage individuals to prevent and end homelessness in our community. This program assists people in need by providing them the opportunity to learn financial, spiritual, and life skills in classes, bible studies, our community garden, and individual guidance provided by mentors. Each participant earns $10 an hour through this earnings program.
Once earned, our participants can then utilize their earnings to purchase furniture and household goods from our Resale Store, everyday needs from our Daily Needs Pantry, or financial assistance to purchase their necessities, stop utility shut-offs or evictions, pay for utility or rental deposits, and pay for other necessities.
Our Outreach Program is where the rubber meets the road. This program is designed to assist our volunteers in being the hands and feet of Jesus in our immediate community. We go out and train local servant s and missionaries to identify and provide help to those who need assistance.
“If I speak in the tongues of men and of angels, but have not love, I am a noisy gong or a clanging cymbal. And if I have prophetic powers, and understand all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have all faith, so as to remove mountains, but have not love, I am nothing. If I give away all I have, and if I deliver up my body to be burned, but have not love, I gain nothing.”
1 Corinthians 13:1-3 ESV
Through these efforts we aim to make direct contact with individuals battling homelessness currently. We go out with resourceful information and material to help them with their immediate physical needs.
Our Transitional Housing Program was created to address a gap in services provided in our community. This helps individuals who need additional guidance and support to become successfully independent.
Our Transitional Housing allows us to assist clients coming out of rehabilitation centers.
We are currently developing Refuge Recovery Center through our transitional housing efforts to assist in filling even more gaps in our community. Click the button to the right to learn more.
