Mission Statement

Our mission is to provide support services that empower and enrich individuals, families and communities.



  • We believe that the support we provide genuinely benefits and assists the growth of individuals and the community.
  • We believe in providing the best customer service possible to all our stakeholders.
  • We believe in operating in a transparent and open manner.
  • We believe in fairness, ethical behavior and fiscal responsibility.
  • We believe positive work environments and team effort will result in outstanding achievements.


The people we serve have greater opportunities to succeed  and transition beyond their current circumstances, as they grow intellectually, emotionally, and physically. They have the ability to provide for themselves and their families, with greater self-confidence, improved skills and increased knowledge.

Our partners value our understanding of poverty and work with us to share resources and help recipients of our services achieve their goals.

Our communities grow more prosperous as those we serve become self-sufficient and better providers for their households.
