Who we are?
We are a non-profit organization, committed to the development, rehabilitation, and empowerment of those in need, especially those that do not have shelter.
We provide holistically, wraparound services to the homeless population and others in need.
Such services include providing shelter, skill acquisition/training, helping with gainful employment, mentorship, and most importantly, spiritual
guidance to Jesus Christ through the help of the Holy Spirit to the glory of God the father.
When appropriate, we reunify street ‘kids’ to their families of origin in an attempt to use the family system to foster rehabilitation of the individual.
In addition, to these, we aim to influence the community positively by engaging with its residents. We engage with those in need through individual discussion, group discussion, and other means to find creative solutions to the difficulties and challenges that the individual in the community may have.
We engage individuals on the street with board games, spoken word (poetry), and other creative activities that will excite them, engage and build their mental capacity. we also guide our clients and candidates through our entrepreneurship program to ensure they have success.
In summary, we believe every human being should be treated with dignity and love. Each individual should be afforded a safe shelter to call home, we look to a future whereby every individual is afforded the dignity of shelter. We ask you to partner with us in our commitment to end homelessness and empower those that are underprivileged.
