In many communities, people are hurting

  • single mothers who are living paycheck to paycheck, and who must decide between paying the electricity bill, buying enough groceries, or buying school supplies for their children
  • working parents who can’t afford to buy a mattress for their child to sleep on
  • young adults on their own who feel isolated and lonely
  • adults who don’t feel “good enough” to go to an organized church
  • senior adults who can no longer take care of their homes, or themselves
  • adults who are living day-to-day with addictions
  • children who have never been to a dentist
  • teenagers who have fallen behind in school, and who don’t know how to resist pressure from neighborhood gangs
  • adults with chronic medical conditions who cannot afford to go to a doctor
  • families who have everything they need, but who feel that something is still missing from their lives

We build partnerships with other local organizations, churches, schools, local government, the business community, and inspired individuals to respond to people’s needs.

Every community has its unique needs, but programs can include:

  • food pantries and food distribution
  • clothing collection and distribution
  • furniture collection and distribution
  • after school programs, including tutoring, for children and youth
  • mentoring for youth and single mothers
  • apartment Bible studies
  • life skills and job skills classes for youth, single mothers, and young families
  • volunteer teams for community service projects
  • support groups
  • outreach to troubled teens and gang intervention

Let us know how you will help us respond to the needs of people, and transform communities.
