Called to Ministry
We believe as Christians that people should have a decent place to live. We believe it is the responsibility of Christians to help their fellow human beings in time of want or need. We believe that the house we own with four apartments is a decent place for people to live. In Transfiguration House, people can be safe and live with dignity even if they are of limited means. We intend to provide temporary housing, evaluated on a yearly basis, for adults regardless of their race, creed, gender, sexual orientation, culture, or national origin.
Therefore, we set forth as our mission, to provide clean, safe, and decent housing at a moderate rental rate to people of limited means or in extraordinary circumstances while they are in transition in our community. We intend to charge enough rent to the tenants so that the building will meet its expenses. We intend to maintain and improve the house in order for it to remain a decent, safe and inviting place for the tenants while they are there. Transfiguration House is a separately incorporated non-profit mission project of the Church of the Transfiguration, Braddock Heights.
