Our mission is to promote hope, dignity and empowerment to transform lives.

At the heart of the Center is a simple desire to love others and build a community where every person is welcomed and valued. We put this in action each week by providing the most vulnerable with practical help and support to navigate life’s challenges. Together with churches, organizations and local groups, we serve others by investing in their lives, forming relationships and introducing people to the life-changing power of God’s love and truth.
