Inspiring story of two Sacred Starters hard at work
Growing a trailer park ministry
In 2016 Alyssa and Brooke felt God calling them to make a difference in their community. After a series of divinely providential turns, God led them to a trailer park community and soon, House of Hope was born.
Since 2018, House of Hope has served the families within mobile-home communities with resources such as youth groups, food, and clothing assistance. Most recently, they launched a tutoring program.
Alyssa and Brooke dream of expanding their locations and services. But they want to make sure they have a solid foundation as they grow. So they turned to FiveTwo.
Our proven training – made more accessible by donors like you – gives Alyssa and Brooke the knowledge, tools, and resources they need to successfully scale their ministry and effectively serve their community’s needs.
FiveTwo has been really good at making me stop and be thinking every week about what’s next and how we’re growing, and looking ahead. – Brooke
Alyssa and Brooke want to serve the youth within the trailer park and have begun planning how to partner with local schools to form a tutoring program. How Alyssa first envisioned this partnership is turning out to be very different than what she expected.
After walking through FiveTwo’s process of testing your idea before launching your idea, she now knows how to structure the program to best meet the needs of both teachers and students.
When sharing her revelations about what she thought she’d hear from the teachers about how what they’d like to see in a tutoring program, Alyssa said:
I was expecting it to be more drill sergeanty like “bring your homework or go home” type thing. Because how do you get your kids to do homework if everybody’s playing games? And they’re like, “No, actually, doing the homework isn’t the biggest part. It’s building the relationships and hearing from safe adults that it is important to further your education. Having people outside the school cheering on school work and the value that it brings is enough.” – Alyssa
FiveTwo helps ministries like House of Hope grow in sustainable ways so they’ll last and bless communities for years to come. Alyssa and Brook are confident they will have the plans, partnerships, and strategies in place to serve more needs within the trailer park community.
