MISSION, VISION AND VALUES
Mission: Transform lives by putting God's love into action.
Vision: To eliminate the gaps to healthcare and wellness in every community.
We will intentionally share the Gospel with word and action in all we do.
Everything we do will be above reproach for the sake of our organization and those who support it.
In all things we will lead people to value themselves, and in return, value others.
Loving God's children by seeking solutions to alleviate their suffering.
We will not enable people to maintain the status quo; growth is the only option.
We believe isolation is toxic and thus encourage Biblical community throughout our programs.
In everything, we will be prayed up, organized, and will execute our tasks with passion!
