VISION

Empower people to attack poverty in their life and community.

MISSION

Strengthen under-resourced communities through spiritual growth, education, revitalization and basic needs.

APPROACH / METHODOLOGY

We are a global organization that serves locally, adopting pockets of poverty and launching what we call 'Friends Initiatives'. These initiatives are long-term commitments that require mutual relationships and collaborative efforts with local organizations, churches, residents, and stakeholders committed to community transformation.

COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT

Our community development model requires a long-term commitment and collaborative efforts with local organizations, churches, residents, and stakeholders committed to community transformation. We use an ASSET-BASED approach that aims to build on the strengths and capacities of the community.

HOLISTIC APPROACH

We understand the connections between: a decent place to live, a living wage job, spiritual health, clean water, quality education, child care, healthy families, basic and financial literacy, transportation and access to healthcare for sustainability.

EMPOWERMENT

We give people tools to help themselves break out of the cycle of generational poverty. It’s about DEVELOPMENT, not charity; DIGNITY, not shame. Believing all humans are created in the image of God, we will always promote the dignity and worth of people and families.
