Isn’t that our first response in light of God’s rich love toward us? We see it as a constant challenge, a high honor, and an incredibly fulfilling part of what it is to be the Church. It was Paul who said, “as we have opportunity, let us do good to everyone, especially to those who are of the household of faith.”
What is Hope House?
We will break ground on what will become the future site of the Hope House: 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. The house will be ADA (Americans with Disabilities Act) compliant, 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 the 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, the 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 are excited to announce that we have purchased land for the 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.
Meet 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.
