Transformation House

Transformation House Transformation House Non-profit Organization Transformation House, Inc. is a nonprofit 501(c) 3, tax-exempt organization that is dedicated to helping men with emergency and transitional housing needs.
(6)

Our primary objective is to empower men to re-establish themselves as independent, self-supporting members of our society able to assume their responsibilities to their families and in every other aspect of their lives. The transition is not just about a new job or a cheap place to stay. It is the process of healing old wounds, learning new skills, and sometimes overcoming one's personal demons. The majority of our clients have been dealing with addiction and relationship issues that have cost them their families, their jobs, and even their freedom. we assist them in finding the courage and endurance to deal with their internal issues of recovery, self-esteem and personal beliefs. There are several organizations in Green Bay that provide assistance to women, children, and families, but very few resources are available to men. There are five emergency homeless shelters in Green Bay with a combined capacity of more than 200 individuals or families. Three other agencies offer transitional housing services with hundreds of people on waiting lists. A study published in July 2009 by the National Coalition for the Homeless showed that 67.5% of single homeless adults are more likely to be male. The culture in America often portrays men as strong, tough, or macho. They are taught to be the head of the household and the primary support for their families. When men experience difficult circumstances that avert their ability to take care of themselves it can be overwhelming. Many lose their confidence and self-worth due to feeling ashamed, vulnerable, and humiliated.

We are managing through our Safe At Home Order here by finding fun creative ways to improve the quality of life here at Transformation House. Today, residents started refurbishing an old planter into a new vegetable garden . We have soil, seeds and a shovel . If anyone wants to donate planters, pots, or other gardening items our resident " green thumbs" would be more than grateful . We could use some colorful paint and brushes to spruce up box itself as well. Through this project, our residents hope to provide fresh veggies to people in need through random acts of kindness . Join us and support!!!! Contact Lisa for questions or to make safe, contact free donations!!!!

Next Level Champions

In times like these, it is hard for parents to provide for their families. It is even harder for families to survive when the husband or father is just getting back on his feet. Most of the 46 men of Transformation House are currently unemployed due to COVID 19 and therefore unable to care for their children like they were before the pandemic.

👉Please join Next Level Champions in this URGENT request by gathering food and household essentials for the children of the men of Transformation House. All donations can be dropped off from 9am-5pm, M-F (April 27th - May 1st) at 430 S. Clay st., Green Bay, WI 54301, 920-857-9611. Transformation House

👉Can’t get to Transformation House... donate via PayPal at www.Transformationhousegb.org (in the notes put “NLC Drive”.

Transformation House wanted to send a big "Thank You" out to our community supporters who responded to our need for games, books, puzzles etc for our men in quarantine. We are receiving items daily and it is much appreciated and needed. We received a donation of all needed to seed indoor plants for our men to have something to do and we took time Friday and did that activity. It was enjoyed by all!

We are still in need of exercise equipment and weights for to keep our men healthy and active while being shut-in.

04/08/2020

Transformation House would like to thank those in the community who have responded to our donation requests as we have received items the last couple of days to help keep our residents busy with things to do while in quarantine. WE APPRECIATE YOU MORE THAN YOU KNOW. Our doors continue to remain open to intakes for men in need in our community. Because of the significant increase in recent intakes, we are in IMMEDIATE need of a few targeted items:

- Blankets*
-flat & fitted sheets*
-pillowcases*
-pillows*
- any exercise or weight equipment whatsoever*
-bath towels*
-items to make bag lunches (perishable and non-parishable are fine - we are making 40+ lunches a day)
-face masks - cloth or otherwise

* These items do not have to be new. We have the ability to launder and sanitize

God Bless and Stay Safe

Leaders at Transformation House have been on calls with public health officials and medical providers and it has been determined we will adopt a mask policy at our facility for all staff and residents. These will act as a barrier due to the close contact individuals have in a facility such as ours. They do not have to be the N95 masks and can be cloth. If ANYONE is making or has access to these, we could really use them to keep the residents and staff at our facility best protected. Please contact Lisa @ 857-9611 if you have the crafting ability or masks on hand. Thank you

WE NEED YOUR HELP!
As you can imagine, a facility with 40 men in it unable to go to work, see their families or be out conducting business can be a real struggle for their emotional, mental and physical health. Our PRIMARY concern right now is keeping all here healthy both in body and mind. That being said, WE NEED YOUR HELP!!! We are looking for donations of games, books, activities the men can utilize while confined to this building for the foreseeable future. We have several men doing handyman projects around the facility but those too will run out. Donations can be made to 430 S Clay Street between 9a-5p or call us at 920.857.9611. We are thankful to all the support our community continues to provide us and I know our program residents are extremely grateful! God Bless! #ittakesacommunity #togetherwerise

We have received several calls regarding our Friday Ribs and Fish Fry. Unfortunately, due to the current health crisis, we are not doing this today as we are diligently focusing on ensuring the health and safety of our residents and staff here. Please check in next Friday as we may resume with modifications. Thank you for all of your support. Stay healthy & God Bless!

03/23/2020

Administrators for Transformation House remain committed to the safety and health of our residents and staff here. We have updated our procedures according to the emergency response directives and have been in close contact with local, state and federal officials to ensure we are properly protecting our residents. That being said, we are in DESPERATE need of a forehead thermometer, masks, and gloves to properly screen the massive influx of intakes we are currently seeing and allow individuals needing emergency shelter to have safe access to our facility. As you can imagine these are very difficult to find. If you have any excess of these supplies and can donate, please do so. We also would be happy to pick them up or you can drop them off at 430 S. Clay Street. A few other needed items:

Any type of thermometers
hand sanitizer
cleaning supplies
garbage bag
laundry detergent

Transformation House | Life Transitioning For Men

Due to all that's going in our city with COVID-19, buses not in service, men have no why to get to work, or their jobs shut down, we need your support. The Transformation House is not only a shelter for men down on their luck with no income which we see filling fast, but a transitional living facility for sincere men wanting stability, a healthy place to live while working on change in their lives. With the men not able to work and added expenses we find ourselves in lack of additional funding. And trying to keep up with this virus we find ourselves in even greater need. So we are reaching out to all for support. Will you help us meet the needs for the ministry.

You can send a check to 430 S. Clay Street Green Bay, Wi 54301, or you can look up on our website at www.transformationhousegb.org and donate there. We thank you for your support and my God Bless your seed with overflowing blessings.

Pastor Reacco please share thanks again.

Transformation House Green Bay

With community spread having been identified for Brown County today, we want to remind community members we continue to have our doors open and serving men during this emergency as much as we are able to accommodate legally . We had additional planning meetings today in addition to conversations with the Brown County Health Department to ensure proper measures and safety for those we currently and will potentially serve. We have implemented additional screening for those newly coming in our doors and will continue to maintain extreme sanitation precautions and measures . We are keeping updated on the mandates and standards for shelter operations and reviewing same several times a day. We have devised plans to accommodate social distancing and limiting number of people in any of our community spaces to the guidelines in place.

As you can imagine, the financial burden to our nonprofit agency is significantly impacted by several of these measures and accommodations. Additionally, with many of our men unable to work , program fees will become difficult for many of them . We remain committed to continuing to serve our residents notwithstanding those financial burdens but also look to our community to assist with those increases needs and the cost associated with additional staff for the greater number being served, the additional cost to food, sanitation and program fees being absorbed. Please partner with us to continue to meet the need. You can support with a donation online on our website at www.transformationhousegb.org or contact us directly at 920.857.9611. Additionally, pray for our residents, staff and our community as we band together to weather this storm.

Thank you and God Bless.

Transformation House, Inc is definitely feeling the impact to our organization, the residents we serve, our families and our community as a whole with the current COVD-19 crisis. We have implemented several measures to ensure all those working and residing with our organization are safe and healthy. Recognizing the need our community has, we have created additional shelter space to serve as many individuals as we are legally able to, while adhering to the directives from the government during this time.
With that, we are certainly feeling the financial impact this will have to our organization ensuring we are meeting the needs of all those we serve. Many of our men are unable to work due to workplace shutdowns and the public transit system closing down. We will continue to support the men in our program during this time, but it will not go without financial impact to our organization. If you are able to contribute in any way to assist in offsetting program fees during this time, we would be grateful. Additionally, with the exception of canned goods, we are well stocked to serve meals for our residents as we normally do. Our greatest need at this time is canned goods and cleaning/sanitizing products.

Our facility operates 24/7, 365 days a year. New intakes can present to 430 S. Clay Street Mon-Fri 9a-4p to complete the intake process. Please visit our website, page or contact us at 920.857.9611 for more information and how you can support us. [email protected]">[email protected]

With the current COVID-19 situation, we want to let our supporters, residents and community partners be aware that we are indeed still open to serve men in our community but have taken planned and appropriate measures to ensure the safety of our staff, volunteers, and residents. Leadership staff have completed an emergency outbreak plan and have educated our residents on proper preventative measures. We will continue to monitor the Brown County Health Department and CDC recommendations for shelters as we keep the health and safety of our residents, staff, and volunteers our main concern. God Bless!
