The Seeds of Hope 12-month program was designed to assist a low-income, at-risk, or distressed family unit. The goal of this program was to identify areas of need while also helping family units cultivate the necessary skills to become self-sufficient and self-sustaining in the community. Examples of targeted areas include securing stable employment, counseling, financial literacy, budgeting, chaplaincy services, and the like, thus assisting the family to become a thriving family unit in their respective community.

Through the generosity of MSI’s financial supporters, MSI was able to provide a "hands up" to the family by:

  • Providing Rental Assistance for 6 Months

  • Purchasing Furniture (Sofa, TV, Beds)

  • Providing a $25 Per Week Stipend Over a 2 Month Period

  • Assisting with Utilities, Car Insurance, and Car Registration

  • Providing Access to an On-Call Chaplain

  • Providing Weekly Guidance to Assistance with Navigating Social Services

Thank you to the supporters and the MSI Board of Directors for their collective efforts. We anxiously await the many opportunities MSI has in store to bless our communities in the days to come! 

Please continue to stand, support, donate, and become an active stakeholder in the vision of MSI.   

Thank You

Happy Woman
