A Troy Church is not only offering a place for worship, but is a place to help the homeless.

Willie C. Scott started the church out of his mother's living room more than 30 years ago.

Kathy Cooper said, "I was getting educated through this vision right here, through the education it was teaching me more about me becoming a better me."
The founder says they have helped hundreds of people and they hope to add a restaurant and other places for the homeless to work.
