Los Angeles is the “Homeless Capital of the Nation,” and approximately 82,000 people are homeless on any given night.

ReIgnite Hope is a unique training program that started on Skid Row, in downtown Los Angeles teaching valuable job skills to men and women, many of whom have been homeless, gang members and ex-offenders.

ReIgnite Hope offers a free, four month welding and metal fabrication program. Students who complete the course are tested by an American Welding Society inspector.  100% of our students have passed their certification test.

Our welding program offers intense Stick and MIG welding training as well as exposing our students to Flux Core and TIG.

Three Primary Goals:

  • First, to help men and women change their lives through learning God’s Word and basic life skills.
  • Second, to teach students a marketable job skill, giving them dignity, and enabling them to provide for their families.
  • Third, to save lives in Africa through bicycle-drawn ambulances fabricated by the students during their training which are shipped to remote villages in Africa to transport critically injured and sick patients to a hospital. Each ambulance saves an average of one life a week, which fulfills the vision of ReIgnite Hope – – Changing Lives Here, Saving Lives There.
