About Us

Mission Statement:

Our mission is to transform the lives of homeless children and their families by providing safe shelter, food, counseling, and training in partnership with local communities of faith through hospitality and daily living support in a compassionate setting.  The program is designed to address the needs of families and equip them to move into permanent housing as quickly as possible.

“It’s simply astounding to see what happens when compassionate volunteers work together to help their neighbors in need.  Over and over again, I see how families become empowered, and communities are transformed.”
