“…and if you spend yourselves on behalf of the hungry and satisfy the needs of the oppressed, then your light will rise in the darkness…” Isaiah 58:10


Good news for the poor includes a way out of poverty

We are Christians passionate about ending poverty, following Jesus where the need is greatest. We work through a network of Christian service organizations and local churches that are at the heart of their communities, empowering the poor to use their own resources to exit poverty. When disaster strikes we are there to provide emergency relief and comfort to victims of natural and manmade disasters.
