Hope For Our Community

Our city is full of homeless refugees in search of shelter, security, and love. One7 owns a complex with fourteen apartments where we provide housing for families in transition. We give them a place to live, food to eat, and clothing. We currently have 5 families and a total of 36 children living with us. The majority of the children were homeless and now live with members of our One7 staff here on site.

We help them with basic needs for survival, but the support doesn’t end there. We assist them with scheduling doctor appointments and provide the necessary transportation. We help set the children up in school and connect them with counselors. We stay in constant communication with teachers regarding student’s grades and progress in class. We have the unique opportunity to bring families in from all over the world to live together in unity.

Family-apts-8-20-004aWe offer an ESL class every Saturday morning for parents of the many kids we work with. While the children are brought up to speed with the English language once they start attending school, the parents are almost left behind and struggle to adapt. Not only does this give us an opportunity to educate, but also to build strong relationships with each family.

Refugees come into this country with nothing but the clothes on their backs. We offer safety, peace of mind, and hope.

    Social Serve should be a must….when we give we inspire others to give, hoping to build a circle of give, take, belonging, and acceptance. Keep reaching out its a gift worth giving!!!!
