GraceTLC Project Goals
This is a Christ-Centered ministry. We want to provide a safe place to live for Veterans, Ex-offenders, Homeless, and at risk individuals & families that reside in Hancock Co. and surrounding areas.
We will assist qualified people in finding permanent housing, establish holistic care and provide assistance in securing employment in jobs that sustain a good living.
We will teach life skills for all activities of daily living and will offer spiritual guidance that fosters an environment of accountability, respect and self sustaining care.
WITH OVER 25 YEARS OF EXPERIENCE WORKING WITH THE AT-RISK & HOMELESS POPULATION, WE HAVE SEEN THAT BEFORE ANY ASSISTANCE CAN BE GIVEN, PEOPLE NEED A SAFE PLACE TO LIVE. WHILE THEY PLAN FOR SUSTAINABLE LIVING.
LONG-TERM TRANSITIONAL HOUSING IS 1-3 YEARS. THAT IS MUCH DIFFERENT THAN SHELTERS OR WHAT PEOPLE THINK AS TRANSITIONAL HOUSING. WE WANT TO ENSURE INDIVIDUAL GROWTH AND THAT TAKES TIME.
A NEW SYSTEM OF CARE
THERE ARE A LOT. WE MEAN A LOT! OF RESOURCES THAT ALREADY EXIST. HOWEVER, NO MATTER HOW MANY RESOURCES OR CASE MANAGERS EXIST, WE KNOW THAT A LARGE PORTION OF PEOPLE ARE NOT RECEIVING THE HELP THEY NEED.
WE RECOGNIZE THAT EACH PERSON IS DIFFERENT AND THEIR METHODS TO STABILIZE ARE PERSONAL.
THAT IS WHY WE HAVE DEVELOPED AN INNOVATIVE ONE-ON-ONE MODEL THAT WILL REMEDY THIS PROBLEM.
TRADES TRAINING & CERTIFICATION
INDIANA HAS SOME GREAT OPPORTUNITIES FOR VOCATIONAL TRAINING AND CERTIFICATION IN THE TRADES INDUSTRY. WE WANT TO TAKE FULL ADVANTAGE OF THAT FUNDING BY BUILDING HANCOCK COUNTY'S FIRST TRADES TRAINING FACILITY. PLANNING AND SUPPORT ARE STILL IN THE WORKS.
WE BELIEVE IT IS IMPORTANT TO HAVE MORE VOCATIONAL RESOURCES RIGHT NEXT DOOR TO THE PLACE YOU LIVE.
