"Loose Offerings" for May
May's Loose Offerings Program will benefit Urban Hope. This organization, led by Executive Director Sarah Hale, is a 501(c)(3) community development corporation committed to the social, economic and spiritual health of Metro Richmond.
The primary focus of Urban Hope is to partner with families who seek affordable rental housing and/or home ownership in the Church Hill area. By supporting families through affordable rental housing and the home ownership process, communities of distress are transformed into environments where families can thrive.
Urban Hope oversees the rental and home ownership processes from beginning to end. Staff and volunteers supervise the construction and renovation of affordable housing, provide financial counseling, and support qualifying families as they develop an ownership stake in their community. Practical, emotional, and spiritual support is provided through Family Sponsors –who play an integral role in the Urban Hope model.
Urban Hope envisions just restorations of blighted neighborhoods, in which existing residents benefit just as much as new ones. In short, they envision a city marked by the ancient biblical principle of shalom: spiritual, social and economic flourishing.
FPC's Boundless Generosity will truly make a difference for the families served by Urban Hope.
