“I am the true vine, and my Father is the gardener. He cuts off every branch in me that bears no fruit, while every branch that does bear fruit he prunes[a] so that it will be even more fruitful. You are already clean because of the word I have spoken to you. Remain in me, as I also remain in you. No branch can bear fruit by itself; it must remain in the vine. Neither can you bear fruit unless you remain in me.
“I am the vine; you are the branches. If you remain in me and I in you, you will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothing. If you do not remain in me, you are like a branch that is thrown away and withers; such branches are picked up, thrown into the fire and burned. If you remain in me and my words remain in you, ask whatever you wish, and it will be done for you. This is to my Father’s glory, that you bear much fruit, showing yourselves to be my disciples.
-- John 15: 1-8
At Hope Street, our goal is to provide a space where individuals can live, learn, and develop new habits which help people flourish. In doing so, we created an intentional space where our members can go to receive guidance in tutoring, resume building, employment, healthcare, filing taxes, or simply to have a conversation over coffee. We call this space The Vine which is open Monday through Friday from 7:00AM-7:00PM.
The Vine has had a presence within Hope Street over the course of the past year and we are grateful for the many volunteers who have been giving of their time every week. Although we are fortunate to be able to provide this space directly within Hope Street’s walls, it comes at an expense. If we were to rent this space out for members to move into, this room would be occupied by either two individuals at $425 each/month or a family at $525/month. Free to our members, there are still costs associated with the overall functioning of The Vine such as lights, furnishings, internet, ink, coffee, etc. Here’s how you can get involved! Below are some ways you can not only help fund the space but also get the opportunity to engage with our members!

As a Church, help us fund this space on a monthly or annual basis ($425/month OR $5100/year). This is a great opportunity to encourage your church community to get involved at Hope Street. Schedule a day/time for individuals from your church to sign up to volunteer within The Vine.
