Committed to a brighter future for children, neighbors and communities.

We consider a healthy neighborhood to be one that is safe, clean, and diverse; one in which it makes economic sense for people to invest and one where neighbors manage change successfully.

Commitment:

Commitment. This word can be used to describe a family from One Hope Church in Athens who was determined to finish what they started even in the midst of COVID-19. Earlier this week, this family traveled to Waco to continue work on homes that they started the week of Spring Break as part of the Bounce project. Before COVID-19, two other groups connected with Bounce were scheduled to come to Waco this summer to help finish projects on homes. Despite plans changing, this family was committed to finishing what they started and completed projects at three homes this week! Thank you friends for serving our Waco community and neighbors!

"If the topic of housing comes up, our immediate response may not be to think of a congregation, faith group, or even our own church community. Yet, faith groups – whether that be your own church or small work group – can be a strength in our communities in so many ways. From spiritual care and guidance to practical assistance and resources, our faith communities can be one of the solutions to address housing in Waco."
