Our work is HOLISTIC. We understand the connections between: a decent place to live, a living wage job, spiritual health, quality education, child care, healthy families, basic and financial literacy, transportation and access to health care for sustainability.

The driving force behind all this is EMPOWERMENT. We are all about giving people tools to help themselves break out of the cycle of generational poverty. It’s about DEVELOPMENT, not charity; DIGNITY, not shame. Believing all humans are created in the image of God, we will always promote the dignity and worth of people and families.
