Vigilant Hope has always believed all people have value, dignity, and something to offer their community. This was one of the main foundations our organization was started 10 years ago, that every person we come in contact with will find hope, life and love through Jesus Christ. For several years creating a sustainable way to create opportunities for empowerment and employment in the lives of our friends has been very close to our hearts.
As an organization we ventured into selling coffee to help fund our shower trailer ministry, which thankfully has been highly successfully on a small level. Coffee is a sought after product and is always in high demand, especially if the product is well produced and has a compelling story. We believe we have both!
We plan to launch a business by spring of 2019 that will give value, dignity, and employment to our friends in poverty. Through this business within Vigilant Hope our goal is to intentionally employ and empower our friends for a 6 month- to a year long period to restore dignity and create purpose.
