Mission, Vision, Values

Strengthening individuals and families by providing them with the education and resources needed to lead, healthy, self-sufficient lives.

It is our vision that we work to create a strong, vibrant and self sustaining community where conflict and hunger, homelessness and poverty, and ignorance and intolerance no longer exist. We look to the day where all families thrive and children have within their reach the tools to succeed. We will work to achieve our vision by living our mission and honoring our values each day.
