Funds from this grant will be used toward the renovation of a newly purchased duplex. One half will be utilized by participants of Sojourner Truth Ministries- House of Hope Transitional Housing Program. Participants will be able to utilize the space provided by the duplex as a bridge between the structured and supervised environment of the House of Hope to independent living in the community.

This grant will expedite the needed renovations to the House of Hope bridge duplex,” said Rev. Angelique Labadie-Cihanowyz, executive director of Sojourner Truth Ministries. “We are excited that upon completion of the needed renovations we will be able to offer House of Hope participants the opportunity to grow in their independence and further their financial literacy and life skills.”
