Hope into Action with Churches Together in Epsom


How can you help?

We would love to invite your support for this new project!

More than anything, we’d ask for your prayers. The establishing of this home is a complex and sizeable task and we look to God for His wisdom and strategy as it moves forward. We trust also that many lives would be impacted for good through the provision of secure housing, professional support from Hope into Action, and the care and support of individuals in local churches. We would love to see lives transformed and hope restored through this new home – so please do join with us in prayer.

The project also requires funding. This funding will be generated through investment from members of local churches and other individuals who would like to help.

We are truly excited about the possibilities for this new project, and are grateful to be working on it together, as churches in Epsom.

How does investing work?

Essentially an investor (or group of investors) buys a house. They retain ownership of the house and they lease it to us for five years. We find, place and support the tenants in the house, do all the maintenance and target a 2% return on their total investment. This model is proving successful with tenants, churches and investors. The need for homes is limitless with the rise in levels of homelessness across the country.

“I love the fact that my investment is being used to help the poor.” Mr H, investor since 2011

Investors can be as little or as much involved in the purchase and refurbishment of their investment as they wish. Generally we look for three bedroom houses and put two tenants in. Each tenant has exclusive use of two rooms and share a kitchen and bathroom. Each house is then linked to a local partner church who provide mentoring and friendship to the tenants. Each tenant is assigned an experienced Hope into Action Empowerment worker who supports both the tenant and partner church.

Investors’ details are kept confidential from the church and tenants. As an investor, you will receive two reports each year covering the finances and conditions of the property and how the tenants are progressing
