Poverty in Bradford

During the pandemic Jodi had the privilege of working with local homeless and under-resourced people. After spending hours listening to their stories she began to understand some of the challenges they face. Six of these friends stepped up to share their stories in an effort to help others understand. We put together a montage of these interviews and shared it with our local town leaders (to view the video, please email us). Many people were unaware that homelessness even existed in Bradford. 

 

The town of Bradford agreed to lease a home to WOW Living to help provide affordable housing for men in need and the community rallied together to renovate and give the home a face lift. 


Since October 2020 we have provided housing for 9 men.

The heart behind The Guest House is to provide more than temporary affordable housing. 

Understanding that people in poverty are under-resourced we want to help equip them with more resources. 

Men who live at The Guest House are given the opportunity to participate in Bridges out of Poverty and the Getting Ahead program. They are also invited to volunteer at the Out of the Cold Cafe and in other affordable housing initiatives. These men have a wealth of life experience that is invaluable and our heart is to listen and learn from them as we serve and walk alongside each other.
