Abundant Life Program

Bigger Vision’s Abundant Life program is designed to help those in homelessness seeking to obtain GED education, certified job skills training, and those in homelessness who are currently employed. This program provides a sustainable housing environment without need for daily call-ins.

We host a weekly information session about the Abundant Life Program on Tuesdays at 1:00 pm. Those who will attend will learn about the different programs we are partnered with, be able to ask any questions, and will leave with the next steps necessary to join the program.

Attending an information session and getting accepted to any particular program does not guarantee acceptance into Abundant Life. Those who are accepted into Abundant Life are required to follow all Guest Rules and also to adhere to the Abundant Life Agreement.

Sign up for this week’s info session on Mar 26th.
