What We Believe

We work faithfully with those affected by disease, until they are healed and further sickness is prevented.
We work faithfully with those affected by disasters, until they are restored and strengthened against future misfortune.
We work faithfully with those who are victims of abuse, until they are safe and made forever whole.
We work faithfully for God, always.


How We Meet Global Needs

how we meet global needs

Assess the Need

First, we assess the needs of each community in which we serve. We work to understand the obstacles, hardships, and challenges native to the area's particular population.

Build the Programs

Next, we build local programs designed to offer immediate relief, short-term care, and long-term growth in the areas that will best benefit the community.

Invest in the Community

Then, we offer the local programs to the local community, working to continually optimize their efficacy via spiritual, physical, and emotional service.
