Pathways to Hope

Transitional Housing

The Prisoner’s Hope (TPH), a non-profit organization, is excited to announce the opening of Pathways to Hope, a transitional living space for men re-entering society after incarceration.

Property Acquisition and Financing

  • In April 2024, The Prisoner’s Hope purchased a property at 4642 Jennings Lane (formerly Four Kings Cafe & Hotel) for $1.2 million.
  • The purchase was financed by the previous owner, Joseph Winkle, with a 10% down payment and a 7% interest rate.
  • The monthly payment is $7,000, with an additional $30,000 principal payment due each March.
  • The organization is actively fundraising to pay off the property within five years, allowing it to generate positive cash flow and operate sustainably.

A Safe and Supportive Environment

  • Pathways to Hope will house men who have been mentored and discipled by The Prisoner’s Hope for at least two years before their release.
  • The facility is currently in good standing with code compliance and will undergo renovations to prepare it for occupancy.
  • The current tenants will be phased out as mentees are integrated into the program.
