The Factory House is a faith-based social services facility that provides people in the community with resources to overcome poverty-related issues. Often individuals who struggle with poverty-related issues do not have the resources necessary to overcome and rise above poverty. This is where The Factory House comes in! Partnering with the local school district, churches, townships, businesses and area agencies, The Factory House serves as a hub for connecting needs with resources.
