Charting impact

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

1. Empower the beneficiaries with holistic programs and methodologies that enable the Treasures to overcome poverty in all its forms and to positively influence their families, communities, and nation. (Programs)

2. Evangelize and disciple the beneficiaries to nurture in each of them a personal relationship with God. (Programs)

3. Replicate the Potter's House model for fighting poverty in other regions of Guatemala. (Programs)

1. Child and Youth Development (CYD)

Children and youth are the future leaders of their communities and our nation. We seek to build up future generations, that they would be rooting and established in Christ, mature and equipped to continue growing into the future and to contribute responsibly to the development of our nation.

2. Community and Family Integration (CFI)

Although we focus on children and youth, we work strategically to influence their immediate environment, particularly their parents, grandparents and other relatives who share the same roof.

Potter's House believes God created the family as the primary locus for holistic training; as such, we work hard to promote integrated and functional families.

In addition, we seek to develop and empower community leaders who work to further their own and their neighbors' holistic development, and in this way overcome all forms of poverty.

3. Networking and Mobilization (NAM)

In Potter's House we are aware that we cannot work alone. We need people who will partner with us to bring transformation and development to the children and youth we serve.

The NAM division works to invite others to join what God is already doing; this includes inviting churches that meet in the community catchment area to partner with us.

1. Family Integration
Create opportunities for children, youth and their families to initiate and strengthen their personal relationships with God. Work to foster internal change through which Treasures are transformed and are equipped to take on their roles in the family.

2. Education
Equip children and youth with tools that add value to their formal education. In so doing, train capable, responsible citizens that work to build a better future for themselves, their families, their communities and the nation.

3. Health and Nutrition
Provide nutritional support as well as preventive and curative medical care, so that Treasures become healthy children, youth and families that are capable of learning and growing.

4. Microenterprise
Provide entrepreneurial and economic development opportunities for children, youth and adults in order to instill in them a culture of responsible credit and savings as part of being faithful stewards of the resources God has provided.

5. Community Support
Help those who are experiencing moments in which they are particularly vulnerable and are unable to fend for themselves. In addition, work to foster community participation through projects and leadership development.

5. Open at least 4 community centers** in other regions of Guatemala.
