We're Open!

The Juzi Spot
The Juzi Spot

We have a very important announcement to make: The LIFE House is officially open for business! As a reminder, we have taken on the mission of teaching financial literacy, creating economic stability, and building generational wealth. We now have a vehicle by which we can directly address the economic stability of our community. We have launched two work experience programs. 

The first is called "The Juzi Spot." This effort provides job training, experience, and certifications for those who would like to enter into the foodservice industry. The second is called "LIFE Tech" which provides the same benefits for those who would like to begin a career/business in the information technology field. 

Along with our partners (T.L.L. Temple Foundation, Angelina College, Workforce Solutions, and Rural LISC), we are looking to challenge the status quo head-on. North Lufkin has a median household income of approximately $14,000 per year with an average household size of three, which is well below the poverty line. Our programs seek to allow participants to position themselves to earn a living wage for this region (approx. $24,000/yr.).

Once again, thank you all for your support and prayers and we continue this journey to positively affect our community in the most impactful way?
