Hope House serves Union County residents, transients and the homeless who are in critical need. They do not have unlimited funds. All their funds are provided by donation from churches and individuals. They do not give money to individuals but do send checks directly to the appropriate business/utility. Hope House is a faith-based organization and does not discrimate against any person or faith. If you feel you have been discrimated against please speak with the Executive Director.

Went to Hope House today. Earlier in the week, was told by a male they were open on Thursday to come by. He'd asked what I needed and I told him my dire need-short story, where I lived, etc...Today, one nice lady called me back and began asking questions. Another walked up, cut me off and wanted to know where I was from. I told her that I was staying in Fannin, soon to be homeless due to illness and job loss, but trying to find a place in Blairsville so I could go to tech school I'd previously applied to. She interrupted again-put her hand in my face practically, and said, ExCUSE ME! We cannot HELP you! I told her I was told by phone they could and wasted what little gas I had to get there. She acted as if I was lying and said WHO told you THAT?? I said, the man on the phone Monday-YOU should know-you work here! She again replied we can't help you, and basically shooed me away. I left in tears. I don't care if they could not help me, but she was so mean, cruel. They can put all the christian literature in their waiting room they want, but her attitude was WRONG! If they have no compassion, they should NOT be allowed to work there, when it is difficult enough to ask for help, and embarrassing, and people are hurting inside. I know people abuse places like that, but I am the real deal, and she just assumed I was worthless as a human being-I did not matter. I say, good luck if you get treated with a morsel of respect, and God HELP if THAT woman thinks she represents Christ-quite the opposite. Thanks for hurting my heart and causing me and my son to walk away more hopeless than before.

According to their business listing, they say:

Faith-based, volunteer organization established as a ministry of the Union County Ministerial Association to assist residents in critical need.

As a "foundation" they can (and probably DO) receive government funding... I wonder from who? They should be reported for this kind of NOT-help. Where does their money go?

Good luck to you and your son.

Hope house does not receive any government funding. All the funds they receive come from local churches and individuals. The only "government" aspect is that they received is by being tax free organization.

I DID check facts by searching web on the UCMA... and discovered what follows about their tax exempt status. I'm not disputing they are all donation supported... since you seem to know. If you are an associate, do you know anything about the 6Dec12 posted problem? That treatment just seemed rude... if the story was true. Sorry for presuming they might receive govt support... here is what I read:

"The UCMA is an organization which receives a substantial part of its support from a governmental unit or the general public 170(b)(1)(A)(vi)"

Just Mike is having trouble understanding the meaning of the word "or" in that sentence.

If they were to take in everybody who shows up at their door, regardless of where they're from, there would be a line stretching all the way from Atlanta.

It's a local organization helping local people, with LOCAL being the operative word.

It does NOT - even in YOUR quote, say that - it says those who are UNWILLING to work shall not eat. God help YOU if you ever have the misfortune to lose your job, for it ALSO says 'as ye sow, so shall ye reap' & 'as ye do unto the least of these my brothers, ye do unto me.' shame on you.

I agree with you, Lisa. "Unwilling" to work is a LOT different than being un-wanted or un-needed FOR employment.

I wish the Federal govt. would sponsor some kind of work opportunity programs like during the Great Depression... the CCC for example. This country's infrastructure is in SUCH bad shape... and it would be a great opportunity for those of us that truly WANT to work. It also removes the "excuse" to collect unemployment checks for 99+ weeks.
