Never underestimate the power of youth and the passion they possess for helping others! Our children are very aware of the issues facing our community including the alarming number of their own peers who are homeless. Martin County school students know about the problem and are here to provide the solution.
Students in the Elev8Hope program through the Martin County School District spearheaded the launch of Mrs. Rina's House Of Blessings. Children of all ages fundraise, volunteer, and raise awareness about our mission. Through the program, students also learn what it takes to run a hospitality house like ours including the process leading up to opening day.
As we work to get Mrs. Rina's House Of Blessings ready for it's first tenants, students learn real life skills such as paying a mortgage, the cost of replacing major components like an air conditioning system, what it takes to run a hospitality house, and more.
