Our Mission: We build strong communities and transform lives through cultural immersion, education, housing and health care.

Our Inspiration: We are an organization driven by faith in a loving God who embraces all people.

Our Vision: We provide resources for the economically vulnerable through our on-going programs that focus on safe housing, education, and health care. Our unique immersion trip program encourages individuals to expand their comfort zone. We believe that strong communities are built by planting seeds that trigger the ripple effect by lifting up one another. We seek to build community, one person, one family at a time.

In all that we do, we seek to build community, one person, one family at a time.
