We provide a Hand-up

Not simply a






We do not want to enable people to continue to in their unhealthy situations; rather, we work hard to empower people – one small step at a time – by building within them the confidence to take ownership of their lives.  

This provides them a hand-up, not simply a hand-out.  

Because most people initially come to us for relief services, we work hard to offer food, clothing, and shelter in a compassionate, respectful way as we build relationships with them.  We know that simply offering free services, as nice as these are, won’t bring lasting change. This is why we strive to gain relational trust.  This is extremely important because many of the people we serve have relational barriers that have them feeling stuck in the situation they find themselves.  Once we gain their trust and the person is ready for real life change, we can start to do the work of empowering them down the road of restoration that leads to transformation.
