To glorify God’s kingdom through the demonstration, adherence and sharing of His Word, in all that we do.
Making A Difference One Person At A Time
Disadvantaged children often suffer from poor health and nutrition – which can be corrected by high-quality early childhood and preschool programs. School-based clinics, nurses, and mental health counselors can also help older children.
Enrichment Resources & Support
Poor families cannot give children the enrichment experiences privileged families routinely provide. Public after-school and summer programs matter most for the poor.
Early exposure to rich language boosts cognitive development, so we need to help poor parents and other caregivers read to children and engage them in conversations.
Matching children and youth with mentors who provide guidance, support, and positive role modeling.
Sharing The Gospel
Promoting creativity and self-expression through arts and cultural programs, nurturing the talents of children and youth.
