Hope into Action is a national charity that enables investors to buy houses for the homeless. The key to this model is that every house is supported by a local church who provide support and friendship to the tenants such as assistance with paperwork and budgeting skills, eating meals or watching a film together.
Faithworks, in partnership with Hope into Action, have launched the franchise for this model across Bournemouth, Christchurch and Poole and are looking to oversee investment to buy more homes.
Every house is linked with a local church for support as part of the 5-year leasing scheme. Churches are supported in turn by an Empowerment Worker who coordinates the links between the tenants and the church and ensures that things run smoothly.
