Ignite H.O.P.E. gave me a place for my children & I to live when we had no where to go. It gave me peace knowing God had put wonderful people on this earth to bless us. I now am getting help with my finances so I can learn to live not just beyond next week but a lifetime. I am thankful the program has given me peace in my life while I get ready to transition to my next place in life.

Adopt-a-Complex

Our Adopt-A-Complex program is a hands on expression of love to our community. Through the usage of resources such as school supplies, food and clothing, Ignite has become a regular presence at the complex as mentors and friends. Ignite’s Adopt-A-Complex program is also a proud partner with the City of Gainesville and the Gainesville Police Department in helping to meet the practical needs of the community through volunteerism.

I am nearly in tears thinking of the love, gratitude and genuine care and concern your ministry shared with myself and the residents. We have not had an organization in a long time that genuinely cared for our residents. EVERYONE of your members has a heart for people and I know for a fact God is pleased with them every time they spread love. In no way shape or form did our residents feel inferior, but yet they felt equal. Many whom are dealing with depression and stress had burdens lifted. I just wanted to say thank you all so much!
