We are an outreach founded on biblical principles. We serve in the spirit of excellence with integrity and compassion for our community, our state, and our nation. We are establishing a reputation of reaching the lost and broken-hearted while treating everyone with dignity and respect as we minister to the total person. Our desire is to help impoverished communities, family and individuals with food, clothing, shelter, literacy, and job placement opportunities.   – K.J. Watkins
