Transformation Montgomery, Inc. is a faith-based community development organization in Montgomery, Alabama. Our current work is focused in the Garden Square neighborhood located in the Chisholm area of north Montgomery. You can read more and follow our story on our blog.
We're always looking for people to help do light to heavy construction work, or help with kids activity in our transformation center. For more info contact Rusty Taylor.
vacant houses are purchased, rehabilitated using mostly volunteer labor, and then made available at an affordable cost to the working poor using a rent-to-own and zero-percent interest mortgage process. These payments are then returned to the organization to fund further home purchases. »Learn more about the Steps to Home Ownership.
participants in the program are matched with a Transformation Team who will walk side by side with them through holistic training designed, not to tell them how to live their lives, but rather to help them identify their own goals and objectives, and then bring resources and support networks around them to help them achieve those goals. This holistic approach includes our introductory Getting Ahead workshop, followed by personalized modules in financial, practical, educational, job skills, family relationships, and spiritual components. »Learn more about Getting Ahead and Transformation Teams.
by reaching out to the entire neighborhood, not just the individual home owners, Transformation Montgomery seeks to work together with community leaders to create an environment for positive change. A key component of this approach in Garden Square is our Transformation Center, a 7,500 square foot commercial property being renovated to serve as a center for education, recreation, and micro-enterprise opportunities.

God has always had a “tender spot” in His heart for orphans. In fact, He calls himself a “father to the fatherless” (Psalm 68:5). The Bible calls Christians to care for orphans, to “vindicate the weak and fatherless” (Psalm 82:3) and “visit them in their distress” (James 1:27). ONEfamily is an initiative of Frazer to expand our response to that calling.
One way we respond is by supporting orphanages, children’s homes, child sponsorship agencies, and similar ministries that provide aide to orphans. For example, recently Frazer has supported the United Methodist Children’s Home, Visiting Orphans, and Stella’s Houses in Moldova. Many of our members sponsor children through Compassion International or World Vision.
Now, there is a growing movement throughout the worldwide church to supplement these forms of orphan care with an even more radical response: bringing orphans into our very homes and families through adoption, foster care, and support teams.
Adoption Bringing a child permanently into your family is a big decision; at least as big as having a child biologically. There are financial, legal, and relationship issues to consider. However, scores of Frazer families have sought the Lord and followed His guidance to adopt, both internationally and domestically, and found that the rewards are incalculable. ONEfamily will partner with an experienced private Christian adoption agency to help our members along the journey of discovering if adoption may be right for their family.
Providing a temporary home to a child during a difficult time in life has its own set of challenges, but it is hard to imagine a way to minister to children that could have more impact than life-on-life investment in your own home. OneFamily will work with Montgomery County DHR to provide training for those exploring becoming foster families.
The Frazer Widows Ministry is a simple but effective way to respond to the directive of James 1:27, "look after orphans and widows in their distress." The book of I Timothy gives detailed instructions that family members are responsible to care for widows to whom they are related, but the church is to be the safety network to ensure every widow is cared for (see the Frazer OneFamily ministry for our initiative to care for orphans).
There are several hundred elderly widows in the Frazer congregation. The goal of the Widows Ministry is to assign a team of two men to care for each widow. Coordinated by volunteers in the Men's Ministry, men who sign up to participate are paired with another man and then assigned a widow to work with. The team then checks in on the widow once a month. Teams may perform yard work, light home repairs, or other simple tasks, and report back to the church if they discover greater needs than they are able to meet. Typical this requires only a couple of hours a month, but just knowing someone cares means so much to widows. To date, several dozen men have volunteered, and the outpouring of gratefulness from the widows has been tremendous.
Men can volunteer by emailing coordinator Jim Vinson, or by calling him at 334-277-8374
