Mission Statement :
Resources Group, Inc. is designed to minister the Gospel of Jesus Christ for a hurting world. Our Primary purpose is leading people to the saving knowledge of Jesus Christ and fortifying the faith of all believers. Our intent is to use the rebuilding of homes and churches as a vehicle to reach the lost and hurting.
Once a family has entered our program we will purposefully share our faith with them while on a job site, at an informative meeting and scheduled assemblies we will use every opportunity to spread the gospel. New conversions and recommitments will be forwarded to local pastors for follow up. In the event that follow up ministry is not available, it is our desire to place a team member there within the community to insure growth of the new believers using small group ministries on a weekly or biweekly basis.
We desire to teach individuals in the surrounding communities necessary skill sets to provide financial stability for their families and create a sense of worth for their emotional well being. Opportunities are numerous. I.E. (Carpentry, Plumbing, Electrical, HVAC and Drywall to name a few) "Give a man a fish he eats for a day, teach a man to fish and he eats for a life time"
Expediency, effectiveness and efficiency are the key ingredients that make our program run smoothly. We presently have the capability of manufacturing 50 homes per month. Our installation of these homes is much slower and is contingent on the use of volunteers. WE are estimating the capability of 10 homes per month based on the present scheduling of volunteers. In the next few months, if we can not increase or maintain this rate of installation, we will hire labors and/or sub contractors as needed. Unfortunately the will raise the overall price of the homes.
Each home is manufactured in Fort Dodge, IA and is shipped to the Gulf Coast. The wall sections for each house are packaged with specific installation instructions, which make construction knowledge helpful but not required to assist in the assembly of these homes. Once the structure has been built and is dried in, we endeavor to assist the families by consulting with them for the completion of their home. We will provide such assistance as gathering materials, services and coordinating volunteers to help them through the rebuilding process.
Over the next few month we will be addressing the need to offer a complete turnkey package for the homeowners. Presently we are interviewing and pricing key trades people and suppliers to complete different elements of the home. Our intent is to offer these services and materials to the families at reduced prices based solely on the volume of business we can generate.
Walls of Hope offers residents of Hancock County, Mississippi, one of the hardest hit by hurricane Katrina resources in order to help rebuild their homes and their lives.
