I. Proposal Summary
Mission 4 Hope Inc. was formed as a Florida non-profit corporation in 2019 to develop a model to turn around the lives of substance abusers, former felons, people living in poverty, and anyone who has hit rock bottom by following an extended family model infused with a solid biblical foundation. Our ministry currently performs community outreach activities with the purpose of empowering people in needy communities with spiritual growth and a sense of family.
Since the formation of Mission 4 Hope, Inc. the ministry has reached hundreds of people in need. Rene Martinez, formerly known as Level has been led by the Lord Jesus Christ to bring the church to the streets of South Florida. Together with fellow Christian disciples, he takes this street ministry of faith and salvation to South Florida and other parts of the United States and renders a message that offers hope to those who are lost and hopeless.
Mission 4 Hope, Inc. recognizes that family (the body of Christ) is the most powerful need of a person and as the ministry continues to grow, the non-profit has identified the need to offer an extended family opportunity to those who seek to turn their lives around. The body of Christ In this manner, people learn to live crime and drug free lives and achieve a sense of purpose and integrity. Our goal is to lead people to develop a strong spiritual foundation thus becoming a source of strength for themselves and others.
II. Organization & Project Goals
Mission 4-Hope, Inc. aspires to initiate a faith-based 12 month program to help an initial group of 20 individuals rebuild their lives. To accomplish this goal, a large home in a 2-acre location will be established. The home will function as an extended family unit and will not charge fees to the residents. Each resident will receive food, housing, clothing, education, and other services at no cost. The home will be self-sufficient.
Applications from men who have hit bottom from prisons and the streets will be received by the ministry founder and a selected group of Christian disciples. Before approval for admission to the home, residents will understand that any act of weapon possession, violence or drug/alcohol use is cause for immediate termination. Admitted residents understand that the home will incorporate weekly scheduled bible studies because the home has a spiritually based component. Once residents are officially admitted, they will learn to work and support each other in a positive way. Residents acknowledge that they will guide new arrivals to the home. Residents have the support of the founder and ministry and will run the home as they voluntarily enter a three-phase program.
Phase #1 consists of a three-month long personal growth experience fueled by scriptural based studies. During this phase residents identify self-worth and belonging in a family-based unit. In-house duties and obligations are implemented. Interpersonal skills are reinforced. Residents will find spiritual meaning in their lives and practice helping one another. Self-destructive patterns will be eliminated.
Phase #2 involves engagement in a marketable skill. The home will initially focus on job related functions such as: car wash, auto mechanics, home economics, pet grooming/sitting services, and other productive community services. Phase #2 involves a 6 month process of raising funds to continue the expansion of homes. Residents do not receive a salary; they serve as staff and train one another. All earnings by residents support the home and continued growth of Mission 4-Hope, Inc.
Phase #3 involves community involvement. Residents will volunteer to help the handicapped, provide community based park activities with youth, participate in community based Christian outreach events, and help the elderly.
After the initial one year program, residents reenter society with a solid Christian foundation, job skills, and with a sense of integrity that serves as a personal decision to live a drug and crime free life. At this stage, residents become ministry disciples.
