To holistically uplift communities one family at a time.
“Two are better than one because they have a good return for their labor. For if either of them falls, the one will lift up his companion. But woe to the one who falls when there is not another to lift him up.” Ecclesiastes 4:9-10
We desire to see families in crisis “lifted up” and restored to spiritual, emotional, and financial wholeness by meeting the felt and practical needs of the community.
