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
