Hope Village Vision
We give families the opportunity to end the cycle of poverty and homelessness. We do this by helping moms and dads achieve better family life and independence so their kids have safe and stable homes.
What is the Hope Village Program?
Hope Village is a supportive temporary housing program to help families with children who are homeless or threatened with homelessness. It is “supportive” housing because we support our clients by mentoring, monitoring, and providing case management for every family so they can escape the threat of homelessness.
It is “temporary” because our clients will be temporary residents for up to two years before transitioning to permanent, or “forever,” housing. In those two years, we support our clients as they remove the personal, educational, and vocational barriers which have kept them threatened by homelessness. Hope Village will not duplicate services provided by other agencies, but rather, it will guide its clients toward existing services.
Hope Village Has A 2-Track Program:
Stable housing at below-market rent for up to two years. Without stable housing, it is hard for a mom or dad to think about improving their life if they are worried about where they will sleep tonight or if there will be food for the kids.
An individual “Program Agreement” for each client that includes wrap-around services including mentoring, monitoring and case management primarily using existing agency services. Living in Hope Village is conditioned upon meeting the milestones in the client’s “Program Agreement”.
Hope Village will have 53 housing units on a 4.85-acre parcel on 30th Avenue West in the central part of Bradenton.
They are two-bedroom units with 650 sq. ft. The homes are designed as a place to stabilize a family’s living situation while preparing the family to achieve long-term self-sufficiency.
