What This Campaign Is For:
This campaign is the launch to a much BIGGER vision!
RSL Builders has a vision to equip those who have struggled on “the streets” or with drug and/or alcohol addictions, have phased out of foster care, armed-forces veterans, rehab-graduates, those recently released from jail, and now, those who have suffered a job loss due to the severe economic impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, with Christ-centered “life” skills.
The cause is simple! Our heart’s desire is to not just teach those that are struggling how to survive, we want to equip them to thrive.
Through teaching, mentoring, and hands-on training we seek to empower participants to be an “overcomer” through life skills such as finance and budgeting, job skills, relevant job training, health and wellness, nutrition, culinary skills, and family and parenting skills in a Christ-centered environment.
Let us treat the whole person and not just the consequences of bad choices or bad circumstances!
We are partnering with other local non-profits to establish a multi-purpose "transition" center that will be a platform for teaching and equipping with life transitioning knowledge and skills and facilitating the education, empowerment, and inspiration of participants for a sustainable life.
What Drives Our Passion?
Our passion is driven by serving in the streets of Greenville, SC for over 5 years and seeing firsthand the challenges and struggles that many face just to secure their basic needs such as food, clothing, shelter, security, and a steady income.
Adversities we have encountered range from drug and/or alcohol addictions to phasing out of foster care or graduating from rehab. Others struggle as they are released from jail, or getting out of the military and being expected to return to a “NORMAL life”, but not being given the tools to succeed in their new “NORMAL”.
And now, increasingly, we not only see the same struggles and challenges that we have been seeing for years, we are beginning to see the struggles of the COVID-19 pandemic and the ramifications this is causing people in our community as well as our economy.
We see some of the people we serve in the streets week after week and year after year.
We are DETERMINED, through the grace and love of God, to give each one of them the opportunity to have a higher standard of living and greater aspirations for themselves.
By using Kingdom principles in transitioning and equipping, participant's lives will be significantly impacted as they tackle the seven mountains of society (media, government, education, economy, religion, family, and the arts) giving them a better chance of overcoming their struggles and challenges and breaking the vicious cycle of poverty that plagues our society.
How Donations Will Be Used:
Our initial goal is to raise $50,000.
This $50,000 will be what demonstrates our seriousness and viability of this endeavor.
It will be used towards securing larger funding sources, architectural blueprints, surveying, permitting and any other related start-up costs.
These donations will be what “gets the ball rolling” toward helping get people off the streets in our community by offering them a better way of living and by teaching them the tools to sustain that better lifestyle.
