FCH of Middle TN Greater Blessing Program
What is the Greater Blessing Program??
Homeowners can apply to FCH of Middle TN to have their homes restored to a simple, decent living condition.
The program seeks to aid homeowners with extremely limited income who cannot afford ie. to replace a leaking roof, fix broken windows, or repair hazardous kitchens or bathrooms.
The Greater Blessings Program is based on Jesus' teaching that it is more blessed to give than to receive, allowing homeowners to experience the "greater blessing" of giving.
How does it work??
  • The homeowner submits an application to FCH of Middle TN
  • The FCH of Middle TN provides a written job estimate and work agreement
  • A repayment plan based on the homeowner's budget is developed
  • Volunteers repair the home
  • When the work is done, the homeowner is given a Greater Blessing box with enough envelopes in it to repay the cost of the materials over an agreed-upon period and on terms they can afford
  • If unexpected bills or medical emergencies come up and a monthly payment cannot be made, the payment schedule is simply increased by one month
  • Homeowner payments are recycled to purchase materials to help another neighbor in need
