ONE TEAM.  ONE MISSION.

Founded with a genuine desire and unconditional motivation to make a difference in the personal lives of the vulnerable, we strategically connect with those who share our mission. Our team is comprised of Board Directors, Advisors, Professional Experts, Teen Advisory Council Members, Service Partners, Prayer Warriors, and numerous Volunteers serving on committees and special project teams. Together we EMPOWER!

OUR VALUES

Our Christ-centered ministry is guided by our shared values:

  • Mission Driven:  Genuine passion for our mission is at the core of each person.

  • Authentic:  Achieving our mission is dependent on trust – trust from donors, partners, volunteers and clients. To earn and maintain trust, we ensure our actions align with our words and our operations are open and transparent.

  • Tenacious:  Impossible is not in our dictionary.  We know that to make a difference in this world, we must have unwavering perseverance, diligence and discipline to our long-term impact plans. 

  • Together:  We are best together.  When individuals connect with others of a shared purpose, the impossible is possible.
