Our mission is to cultivate community, opportunity, and restoration with people experiencing poverty and homelessness.


Every person has a place to live, thrive, and belong.



We are a community committed to one another in all circumstances of life. We value the gifts of every person and strive together to become who God has created us to be.


We cultivate empowering opportunities that promote increased health, stability, and overall wellbeing for individuals and the community.


As participants in God’s restorative work, we seek restoration with God, self, others, and all of creation.


Our mission is rooted in Christian faith and welcomes all people.
