God has given Pastor Mealancon and the Progressive Church
family a mandate to transform the community around their local Church, by
eradicating blight, poverty, illiteracy and economic disparities.
Our community transformation project has replaced three
blighted properties with new homes occupied by first time home buyers,
renovated a local facility as a Multi-purpose Center, repurposed a property to be used as our Youth Center facility and purchased over twenty-eight continuous acres of
land for development. This development, “The Center of Hope” will address the
spiritual, physical, social, educational and economical needs of the people to
create a prosperous community.
We also envision decent, safe and affordable housing for the
Elderly community and commercial developments that will house business to help
create jobs, entrepreneurship and economic empowerment in the community.
