Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Educate nonbelievers and Christian believers of bible truths, as well as teach how to recognize synthetic religious laws made by men that do not align with bible scriptures.

Reduce homelessness in our city by providing immediate personal supplies and guidance to services that are available for permanent housing, health, and income.

Educate senior citizens and women in monetary digitized systems, long-term food storage, and preparation for unexpected catastrophic events.

To reach our goals and objectives, Beit El offers workshops to the community focused on health, computer education, and finances. In addition, through our annual Christmas Homeless Project, we partner with other nonprofits to provide immediate personal services needed by homeless citizens.

We hold four events a year to aid us in income, as well as receive different grants from private funders and partners.

Our organization's capabilities for meeting our goals are through weekly bible studies by professors who are well-educated in biblical education. We are capable of providing the supplies needed by the people we serve through our weekly donations, private funding, and partnerships.

We pride ourselves in providing information that our community residents can put to application.

We are three years strong, and now moving into our fourth year. We have fulfilled our goals in providing for the homeless increasing our numbers every year to improve the lives of the homeless.

We held our first "Tomorrow's Workshop" educating senior citizens and women with education and information on preserving food for ten years or more through canning and other means of food storage and supply.
