The Hayti Community was once an economically and socially strong community. In order to provide the best solutions for the local community, we plan to open The H.O.P.E Center (Hayti, Outreach, Progression, Enrichment Center) for promoting excellence to serve as a hub of networking for all the organizations that work toward progress for the Hayti & Greater Triangle Community. With the founding of a central place to meet, support and collaborate with one another, it is our belief that we as a community can develop quicker and more cohesively.
Once it is established, in addition to the services we provide and other non-profits in the community, we would be able to supply a venue for medical and health outreach.
After attaining a building of at least seventy five thousand (75,000) square feet, we will utilize our partnerships with groups including but not limited to, Habitat for Humanity, and the local Senior Volunteers. These organizations would be utilized to manage local volunteers in the renovation of the new space, both increasing our capabilities and providing locals with work experience and new skill sets to further develop their livelihood.
Once the building is up to code we can move our projects into our new space and provide a 24 hour building for people in the community. Through local non-profit work programs, we can hire local people as staff to assist with building maintenance, management and services. We also plan to rent office space, and potentially rent commercial space to alleviate the cost of building maintenance. With the basic necessities of food, water, clothing and shelter in one convenient area, people are able to focus on furthering their lives and thus feel better about strengthening their community through education and work, which we expect to offer in the building as well.
