Mission: Loving kids, families, those in need with food and financial assistance while restoring dignity and hope for a better future!

Vision: to build a team implementing our services to 5,000 of the more than 45,000 families in our 42 zip codes while collaborating with other like-minded organizations as well as planting the SECOR model in additional locations.

As a faith-based organization, we are about restoring justice to a fearful, hidden, hopeless, and significantly unreached group through redemptive love and grace in the face of suburban poverty’s devastation.

While facing brokenness, hurt, confusion, and shame, we see the faces of our guests as they seek help in the midst of job loss, underemployment, recent divorce, inadequate retirement for the elderly, outrageous medical bills, brutal rents, almost non-existent public transportation, broken down auto’s, and multiple other “LIFE HAPPENS” events that few are capable of planning for.

We are committed to breaking the chains of suburban poverty in our area allowing those who are set free to discover their God-given purpose to make a contribution to this world.

We believe that all people are created in the image of God and therefore deserve respect, compassion and dignity…we will serve them to that end.
