Causes We Are Passionate About
Adoption and Youth Education.
No child should be without a family and we are here to help. Education provides children with opportunities to experience a better quality of life.
Small and Micro business initiatives provides people with opportunities to escape poverty, gain a voice in their community and experience a better quality of life.
Pastors need seasons of refreshing more than anyone. We are here to provide the financial assistance to the dream of rest a reality.
People are destroyed financial by what they don’t know. Workshops and seminars that increase the financial literacy of attendees are of great value. Financial education might be the #1 to eliminate the wealth gap.
