Rebuilding, Refinishing and Repurposing Lives.

The Matthew's Hope Chest Workshop located at 930 Carter Road #311 is about 1/4 north of W. Colonial Drive in east Winter Garden, and is the primary work opportunity for guests of the ministry who desire more than their basic needs met on Tuesday Ministries Services Day. 

 

Guests are challenged to find and develop their woodworking skills.  Guests also have the ability to demonstrate their work ethic, punctuality, reliability, ability to stay on task and maintain productivity, as well as their willingness to work in a team environment.  All these traits and skills help determine a "structurally challenged" friend's eligibility for entering the "Working Full-Time" option of the Moving Forward Program.  As well, a guest's work patterns determine their eligibility as a candidate for Transitional Housing. 

 

Guests who work at the Hope Chest Creations location clock in and out and treat their time at the Hope Chest as if on the job.  They follow a production schedule.  They are held accountable to results.  The ministry desires to replicate a true work environment in every aspect, thus preparing them for their future of independence and self-sustainability. 

 

Matthew's Hope Chest Creations workshop hours:  Monday - Saturday, 8:30 a.m. - 5:00 p.m.
