A group of dedicated community members began the process of creating HOMe after realizing there was a gap in services for the homeless. Committed to developing a program that would provide shelter and assistance for these individuals and families, HOMe empowers women to become self-sufficient and transition into stable housing, giving them, and their children hope for a better future.
HOMe has been overwhelmed and grateful of how the community embraced our vision and came together to build a house and provide continued support of the mission. We value collaborative community partnerships with our local nonprofits, schools, churches and businesses. We believe homelessness is a community problem that deserves a community solution.
HOMe families have experienced hardships such as medical, financial, mental, spiritual, trauma and challenging relationships. How and why these families come to us is not for us to judge. Our most important service it to show love with dignity and grace. No family will look the same walking through our door. Each will have their own story to tell and we are here to listen, support and provide.
Mooresville reports a yearly average of approximately 100 homeless children in the combined MGSD and ISS school districts. Homeless students are more likely to underperform academically, have developmental delays and have physical and mental health problems. Our organization values our residents and future generations, and we are dedicated to advocating and serving the homeless to avoid long-term consequences that impact the social, economic, and spiritual health of our community.
