We are called to be the "salt and light" of the world as we represent the Hands and Feet of Jesus wherever we go. Through non-profit partnerships and outreach programs, we identity specific needs within both our local and international community. Our heart is to serve, encourage, and minister to those in need and anyone else we may come in contact with along the way. May His love and light shine though us always!
This is how we have discovered love’s reality: Jesus sacrificed his life for us. Because of this great love, we should be willing to lay down our lives for one another. If anyone sees a fellow believer in need and has the means to help him, yet shows no pity and closes his heart against him, how is it even possible that God’s love lives in him? Beloved children, our love can’t be an abstract theory we only talk about, but a way of life demonstrated through our loving deeds.
1 John 3:16-18 (TPT)

VOLUNTEERS IN SERVICE TO OTHERS (VISTO)
VISTO (Volunteers In Service To Others) was created in 1980 in collaboration with the Ministerial Alliance with the mission "to help people in times of crisis and enable them to get back on their feet." This is their mission to this day. The primary way that VISTO responds to that mandate is through food, financial assistance, and education.
VISTOR is committed to reducing hunger and defending human dignity. The organization impacts our community by nurturing children, youth, and families; addressing basic and emergency needs; fostering independence and self-sufficiency; and promoting health, healing and coping. VISTO embodies the philosophy of... offering a hand up not just a hand out.
HOMEBASE ORPHAN CARE
Homebase Orphan Care is an organization for providing love and support for children in need, and the primary focus is to assist children in the foster system. The goal is to make a difference -- one child at a time.
Blue Bags are provided for children entering foster care, because most of the children carry all their belongings in a trash bag from one foster home to the next. Homebase provides Blue Bags in hopes of letting each child know they have tremendous value and they are not forgotten.
