Hope for Women in Redding

Good News Rescue Mission opens their House of Hope

Posted: Nov 29, 2017 6:18 PM

Redding, Calif. -- The Good News Rescue Mission in Redding celebrated the opening of their “House of Hope” on Wednesday.
The home, located on Grange Street, will house women and children who are fighting the cycle of poverty.
The former Good News Mission Director Cesar Partida put the thought into action years ago because he saw a need in the community that had to be filled.
"This was unacceptable that the majority of the women and children were sleeping on the floor. That just broke my heart and i was like we have to do something about it," said Partida.
Now this home full of hope has 80 beds for those fighting poverty and 25 extra spots for overflow.
A total of 105 spots.
But as Acting Executive Director Jonathan Anderson says they’ve already reached capacity.
"We actually invited the ladies in and we were at 109. We were already over capacity when we opened, “ said Anderson.
He adds homelessness has risen 50-percent over the last year, but God has really helped the mission do some good work.
And they’re not stopping here
"To develop a cycle of supportive services , housing and permanent housing. And develop a one village," said Anderson.
This village will work with all the services they have by taking people in for services transitioning them into the House of Hope or similar amenities.
Then aid them to acquire permanent housing and be able to sustain themselves.
