Vision and Mission of The Yellow House
The dream of the Yellow house is to provide short-term housing for women in crisis situations which leave them vulnerable to violence, homelessness, abuse, relapse, or sex trafficking. We have worked in the community for the past 7 years and have found a gap in temporary housing for women in our community. The Yellow house will bridge that gap by providing a short-term dwelling place of refuge, healing, true transformation and hope for women in need of freedom from life-dominating circumstances.
We desire to meet women where they are by providing immediate care while demonstrating the unwavering love of God. We want to direct women to a safer and more sound place both physically and spiritually. Our hope is for the women to step into an atmosphere of Christ-centered worship, love, and grace while finding their God-given identity. We want them to find strength and wisdom in Jesus to remain free from past circumstances and harmful cycles.
History of The Yellow House
Our first response to the needs we saw in our community started with the Diaper Bank in 2010. We began aiding mothers and their babies that were in need of necessities such as; diapers, wipes, and clothing and working closely with local agencies such as the Department of Health who referred families to us who needed assistance and guidance. As the word spread of our efforts, more agencies reached out to us to assist those they were working with. As a result, BeGenerous Inc.'s partnerships and impact grew. We were active in community neighborhoods bringing tangible items and the message of love and hope through Jesus Christ-reminding them that they were not forgotten.
We also began visiting local women group homes providing them with needed supplies as well as more chance to empower and encourage women who were on their journey to freedom and restoration. To date we have assisted hundreds of women in need of love, hope, guidance and have seen the Lord demonstrate His tangible presence and provision time and time again.
In 2013 we were prompted to take notice of a Yellow House that we thought was simply served as a landmark for directions. Weeks later we would come to the revelation that it was indeed a landmark but for much more than we had imagined.
The Yellow House became a dream that developed as BeGenerous Inc. grew in influence and impact in our community over the last several years. It was a divine vision that came from seeing a significant need in our area for a safe and temporary shelter for women in urgent situations. Many women that have reached out to us for shelter and care were not able to qualify or enter into shelters in our area because of long-waiting lists, or because of where they were in the process of detoxification and rehabilitation from drug addiction. We saw gaps in housing for women who wanted to be free from a life of addiction but had to wait to get into rehabilitation centers-leaving them vulnerable to relapse immediately after detoxification. Our desire is to fill in the gaps for housing so that any woman who desires to be free from drug addiction can walk the entire journey without stumbling blocks along the path. We truly believe that the Yellow House project will fill that deep need in our community.
