SIFM - Assistance to Transition Back to Society

Summary

Standing In Faith Ministries(SIFM) - Faith With Works Program (FWWP) allows individuals to transition from a homeless to gain access to tools to make a new start. Through FWWP, individuals can 'invest in themselves' with free computer classes including tools for resume writing, cover letters, assistance with job search assistance and mock individuals. To achieve this goal, SIFM will need 10 desktops and laptop computers, 2 Network Printers, and additional office supplies to meet this goal.

Challenge

Many in the homeless community want to transition back to society but lack either monetary means or other assistance to move forward. Sometimes family is not an option because of past mistakes

Solution

Standing In Faith Ministries(SIFM) - Faith With Works Program (FWWP) Program services are provided at the SIFM Headquarters'. The SIFM Headquarters provide a safe environment and setup for individuals that won't be afraid to achieve their goals while also being equipped with life skills training.

Long-Term Impact

There are currently programs assisting individuals who were impacted by Hurricane Harvey in the Houston and surrounding areas. However, there is a special need for other individuals who were just impacted by life and need that extra boost in returning to society. With this project, we hope to increase the means for individuals to get the basic computer skills and etc they need to land the special job
