Our members take our legal responsibilities serious. We uphold our three main duties to our community which is care, loyalty, and obedience. We strive to pay attention to what's going on in our community and focus on putting the organization's welfare above all other interest when making decisions; acting in accordance with 1 Purpose's mission, goals, and bylaws.
1 Purpose is a faith based non-profit, established and operating on biblical principles. The mission of 1 Purpose is to provide rehabilitation to communities in need through workshops events and activities that will empower, encourage, and rebuild members of our community one person at a time.
We believe that coming together as a community is the key to helping those in need. We accomplish our goal by providing events in the city to build awareness and a support system. This will give a glimpse of hope and restore humanity into the minds of the people. This mindset will continue to grow from community, to city, to nation.
WHAT WE DO
Workshops will focus on debt freedom, understanding credit, owning a home, managing money, etiquette, job placement, going back to school, resume building, how to dress, family care, and drug testing.
Feeding the Hungry -
This “love feast” will take place in April, July, November, and December. The festivities will be geared towards the children and ensuring that those who are homeless know that they are valued members of the community. 1 Purpose believes that this will give them hope and encouragement.
Transitional Homes -
Transitional housing will accommodate families who display a need for help and are eager to make a better life for themselves. Individuals going through the 12-month program are required to participate in the workshops as well as be mentored by a life-coach. The housing will provide families with a safe place to collect themselves and work towards stabilization and self-sustainability. Housing will be donated to, or purchased by 1 Purpose, and will be restored, if need be, by recruiting, hosting and managing volunteer mission groups from churches and the general public.
1Purpose staff members identify and qualify homeless members of the community who are in need of housing. Homeless members who qualify for the program are required to demonstrate need. This is determined via application and interview process. Religious affiliation is not a factor in determining eligibility. 1 Purpose staff members create project plans for each work site to ensure safety of the living quarters, and, in some cases, help find or supply materials and tools needed to complete a home before a qualified member moves in. They also obtain all work permits and provide insurance should there be a need. 1 Purpose plans to assist in housing 10-12 families per year.
