Rites of Passage (ROP)
The Rites of Passage (ROP) was developed over 20 years ago, and is the signature program of Community Reconstruction Housing, Inc. (the Agency). Church elders, concerned with the number of black boys at-risk for involvement with law enforcement, exhibited a history of poor academic performance, and/or negative peer associations and attitudes toward education, received informal skills training – coaching in how to behave, set goals, complete homework, and become a “man”.
Economic development ideally refers to the sustained, concerted actions of communities that improve the standard of living and economic health of a specific locality. The occupational skills training component prepares at-risk youth to gain placement into career pathways and/or further education or training.
Our mission is to implement and facilitate a workforce development services that are responsive to employer/employee needs. We are dedicated to providing the training.
Faith-Based Political Engagement
Faith-Based Political Engagement is yet another key focus of the Community Reconstruction Housing Institute. Again, utilizing a “church-based” model, the CRHI implores best practices/proactive initiatives to educate, advocate, mobilize and deploy members of faith-based institutions to insure ‘taxation through representation’ is realized to achieve self-determination and control.
Housing and Faith-Based Community De
Housing and Faith-Based Community Development is a key focus of the Community Reconstruction Housing Institute. Utilizing a “church-based” model, Community Reconstruction and Housing advocates strive to meet citizen needs. Community members are organized to meet with citizens to identify needs, offer solutions to stakeholders and government leaders, and educate community members regarding access to available resources.
