What Would You Do

What would you do if you had an addiction or mental health crisis that you were struggling with,  you lost your job, went through bankruptcy, your home was foreclosed on, your apartment building raised the rent so that you could no longer afford to live there, or a natural disaster took your house from you?  Any of these things could happen and if you had no family or community to turn to what would you do?  It is easy to judge but until you have walked in that person’s shoes you do not truly understand the physical and emotional suffering that is homelessness.

 

Food for Thought

Recently I heard someone experiencing homelessness talking about how depressing it is when she sees people hustling home at 5pm after a day at work and the realization that she has no home to go to sets in. Being without a home is not only physically stressful but also takes a tole on mental and emotional health. Won’t you join with us, join this movement to lift up our brothers and sisters, to make a community where they not only survive but thrive!

The Journey Begins

I am excited to announce that we have just obtained 501C3 nonprofit status and now we need your help! We are ready to transform this dream, our vision in to a reality. Are you ready?

What Is Our Vision

The North Carolina Community of Hearts and Homes will be a master planned community that provides affordable, permanent housing and a supportive community for the disabled, chronically homeless in North Carolina.  This transformative residential program will exist to love and serve our neighbors who have been living on the streets, while also empowering the surrounding community into a lifestyle of service with the homeless.

This community will be a place that enables our homeless brothers and sisters to heal. It will be a place where they can rediscover hope, renew their purpose and restore their dignity. Most importantly, it will be a place they can call home.

Some amenities we hope to include:

  • An innovative mix of affordable housing options
  • Places for worship, study and fellowship
  • Memorial garden, columbarium and prayer labyrinth
  • Medical facilities for behavioral and physical health, and other supportive services including hospice and respite care
  • Companion animals and farm animals as well as veterinary care for these animals
  • Walking trails
  • Community garden providing fresh fruits and vegetables for residents
  • Outdoor movie theater
  • Community market
  • Bed and breakfast for overnight visits
  • WiFi
  • Job opportunities

Home is where the heart is and we hope that you will join and volunteer with us in this labor of love.  Lets be empowered into a life style of service with the homeless.
