Our Mission

Our Vision

Our vision is to provide compassionate care through the healing ministry of Jesus and create hope for a better life for our neighbors who are challenged by poverty of mind, body, emotions, and spirit. We accomplish this effort not solely on our own, but in partnership with other agencies and by engaging the local community in our efforts.

What We Do

We help people in need get on their feet and maintain stability so that they don’t have to face these hard situations in the future.

Our programs and services provide for individuals’ and families’ immediate needs, while also offering the tools and resources for a better tomorrow. Our compassion and commitment to move beyond direct service compels us to address the root causes of poverty through advocacy and the promotion of social justice.
