What is Hope House?
Hope House is a residence that is owned and operated by Living Light for the purpose of practically serving those among us, specifically those with special medical needs. Currently we are raising money to build an ADA (Americans with Disabilities Act) compliant house, which includes wide doorways, low sinks and counters, accessible showers, ramps or zero-grade transitions in and out of the house, and overall function that would afford a wheelchair-bound person, or aging person with need of assistance, the luxury of independence within the context of a family space.
Because Hope House will be owned by Living Light Christian Church, a 501(c)3 organization, tax-exempt donations can be made to fund and sustain it, and because it will be owned and operated by donations, Hope House residents will not be responsible for the heavy tax burden otherwise incurred by cost of living.
Where will the house be located?
We have purchased land for Hope House on the north side of Kenosha. We want to build a house from scratch that we know will suit a wide range of physical limitations because this house is meant to serve the most needy among us. Our break-ground date will be announced soon.
THE FIRST OCCUPANTS
The Reuwer Family
For the last decade, Living Light Christian Church has had the privilege of supporting, sharing life with, and being served by a family that has endured immense trials with the health of their children. We have walked with Mike and Megan Reuwer through the ups and downs of grueling diagnoses and medical challenges and find them to be a perfect fit for the Hope House vision.
An Opportunity to Give
Many of you know the Reuwers well, and desire to help establish them in a home where their children can thrive. Others of you may be learning about this family for the first time, but the idea of providing for families with special needs (whether children, the aging, or those who have suffered accidents) will be one that resonates with you on a deeper level.
Living Light needs to raise $300,000 to build Hope House. We are looking for donors to help us reach this goal to finance this cost over 5 years. To anyone ready and able to give, understand that your one-time or monthly commitment will take this project from the dream stage to the buying, building, and moving-in stage. We welcome your partnership and can’t wait to begin making this dream a reality!
If you are ready to partner with us, you can make a 100% tax-deductible donation online below or by check.
Checks can be made out to Living Light Christian Church: 6102 39th Ave. Kenosha, WI 53142. Please write “Hope House” in the memo.
