The purpose of our organization is to help others in need by teaching life skills which will improve physical, mental, social, spiritual, and economic well-being. Our mission is to build a homeless shelter and a medical clinic for families in need. Services at the shelter will address job skills coaching and training, vocational education, on the job training, life skills training, bible studies, and prayer. Services provided at the clinic will address the mental and physical needs of the families. Our goal is to provide well-rounded assistance for families in need in order to give them the skills and help that they need to survive and thrive on their own.
Our long term goal is to expand from what is stated above into providing health care by a way of a holistic clinic, providing medical assistance and also natural alternatives for healing. We also plan to incorporate a children's boot camp for youth with behavioral challenges as a way of outreach to the community. We ultimately plan to provide a homeless shelter for those in need of housing in our area. In conjunction with each goal listed above, we plan to provide training to assist our neighbors in need in becoming gainfully employed.
We are currently running a literacy center for children and adults, which provides one-on-one tutoring, computer aided learning, science and art projects, educational games, and a healthy snack.
We are also doing Job Readiness programs in the community preparing those who are recent graduates, displaced workers, unemployed, or underemployed for resume writing, job searching, and interview skills.
Past events include 3 Back To School events. Hundreds of area children were given back packs, school supplies, food, and clothing. The local families enjoyed free snacks, crafts, bounce houses, health screenings, and visits from the local police and fire departments.
Community outreach has included clothing closet, food pantry, hot meals for the homeless, coats/socks/hats/gloves distributed to the homeless, and coat donations for newly released female prisoners.
