BBless2 Outreach Ministries addresses the needs of two vulnerable groups:
Individuals and families who are homeless
Those in need of transitional housing
The central Ohio region is growing by leaps and bounds, but many communities are being left behind, even as others prosper. The number of families with young children, older adults, domestic violence survivors, and those with mental health challenges are among the rising numbers of homeless persons in our communities. BBless2 seeks to provide these men, women, and children with food and basic necessities.
The Transitional Mobile Home program began when By Way Mobile Homes donated two mobile units to the ministry in 2015. After completing some necessary renovations, the units were ready in January 2016.
Clients move into a furnished two-bedroom mobile home with linen, dishes, pots and pans, and other necessities. BBless2 completes an overall assessment of each person's needs and assigns a counselor to the client.
We also provide transportation to the grocery store and the laundromat. BBless2 also provides guidance and assistance in other areas in line with the organization's capacity.
A person can continue in the program for up to nine months. During this period BBless2 works closely with social service agencies to help our clients obtain permanent housing.
