Let’s put an end to poverty and hunger in Morgan County!
Churches in Mission
Mooresville, IN | September 26, 2019 For Immediate Release
Churches in Mission’s education and life skills programs have outgrown the Hope House facility! Churches in Mission’s life skills programs are educational classes that provide our neighbors with life skills that will move them toward becoming self-sufficient. Last year, more than 200 households were represented in Morgan County at programs through the Mission.
Currently, due to expanding our programs and continued growth in participation, a larger facility is needed. Smaller classes and events will continue to be held at the Hope House facility until the building has been sold. After the sale, Hope House classes and programs will be housed at partner churches, schools and other facilities within the Morgan County community.
“Over the past year, our programs at Hope House have outgrown the facility and it became evident that we needed to expand our programs to be housed outside of the Hope House building. Hosting our programs in various other facilities allows us to fit the need of each program appropriately and to build partnerships with other organizations in the community,” said Hope House Coordinator Kelli Webb.
The Hope House facility has an office for counseling, a computer room, a classroom, and a playroom for children. Classes held at the facility have included Eating Healthy on a Budget, Eat Smart Move More, pre-diabetes workshop series, Healthy Cooking, financial classes, computer classes, family communications, Signs of Alcohol Abuse, the basics of sewing and mending, and monthly Family Fun Nights where families are encouraged to talk together as they share a meal and an activity.
