Trinity New Hope is its own separate nonprofit. However, it share ties to the congregation through board members, proximity of the homes to the church property, and office space in Trinity Lutheran Church’s building. We like to include a report on Trinity New Hope in our annual report packet to keep our church members and friends informed.
TRINITY NEW HOPE
Trinity New Hope’s tagline is “Help and hope for those in need.” That’s what we do! We are very proud of the numerous families we have been able to help this year, including assisting several families transition from homelessness to a clean, safe home in which to live. Trinity members have participated by helping to provide furniture, appliances, cleaning supplies, and holiday gifts for our tenants.
Since Trinity New Hope is a 501(C)(3) non-profit corporation, we are eligible to receive donations. In 2020 Trinity New Hope participated in the Home Partnership Foundation’s Avenues for Hope housing campaign, which raised $24,200 from 121 donors. We exceeded our fundraising goal of $20,000 and received donations from more than a dozen different states! Our goal is to use part of the funds raised to build a large storage shed on the Trinity New Hope land, which will provide space for a workshop for our maintenance staff and a place to store maintenance tools and materials.
In 2020, Trinity New Hope received a $100,000 loan for capital improvements from the Mission Investment Fund of the ELCA. We were able to utilize these funds to install new siding and windows on all 16 homes. A local contractor, A&S Siding, completed the work. This company went above and beyond to help us stay within the budget for this project, including donating materials and labor to replace damaged wood found under some of the old siding. A&S did outstanding work for us, and we are proud of the improved curb appeal of our homes.
Trinity New Hope’s 16 single family homes are overseen by our amazing staff: Tami Romine (property manager) and Steve Van Atter (maintenance manager). If you see these fine individuals, please thank them for their excellent work!
The Board of Directors is proud of the difference that Trinity New Hope is making in Nampa. If you have a heart forthis ministry, please contact Pastor Meggan or any board member. There are many opportunities to volunteer, and we would welcome you to the team.
The Board of Directors, Trinity New Hope
