Non-Discrimination Policy – House of Hope 316
- House of Hope 316 is a part of H10 Ministries, an Arizona 501(c)3 non-profit corporation.
- The House of Hope 316 is a group adult independent living facility that provides housing, food, and other services to elderly men and women who might otherwise be homeless or living alone in an unsafe situation, due to their lack of financial resources and/or income.
- We define “elderly” as age 60 or older, although applicants of a younger age will be considered on a case-to-case basis.
- At no time will we consider a person’s race, financial status, sexual orientation, nationality, or religious beliefs when accepting an application and considering an applicant for residency in The House of Hope 316. We will not ask these questions on our written application or during our verbal interviews. We will ask about an applicant’s date of birth and gender because of the target age we serve and because we will not house a man and a woman in the same semi-private room unless they are legally married. This information will also help us complete the emergency medical form that is used to accompany a resident during a trip to the hospital. We will inquire about income as a part of the process of determining the rent that a resident can afford. If they have no income, they pay no rent. No one is turned away for financial reasons.
- We believe in and try to practice the principles that we find in the Bible – that we are to help people in need; we are to care about everyone, not judge them.
- Residents will or will not be accepted based entirely upon what appears to be their ability to live in a group adult independent living facility with other people. The process of assessing who we can accept as a resident is described in greater detail in the written application policy.
Paid Staff or Volunteers
- At no time during the application process for employment or for a volunteer position will a person’s race, gender, nationality, sexual orientation, race or religious beliefs (or lack of such) be a factor in which applications will be accepted, who will be offered a paid or volunteer position and who will be retained after they join us.
- We believe in and try to practice the principles that we find in the Bible – that we are to help people in need; we are to care about everyone, not judge them. We want paid staff and volunteers who share this same philosophy when helping people in need.
- Although we accept anyone who may have differing religious beliefs (or none at all), we recognize that some people who are being considered for top leadership positions might feel more comfortable and might be more productive in those positions if their religious views were similar to those expressed by our Ministry.
