OUR MOTIVE: to serve others and in doing so serve Jesus Christ.
“For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in, I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me. .. I tell you the truth, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers of mine you did for me.” (Matthew 25: 30-40)
OUR GOAL: that those whom we serve will experience the hope and love of Jesus Christ through us as we provide the necessities for daily living, encourage them to make next steps toward greater self-sufficiency in order to realize their value as a unique individual created with purpose.
