Charting Impact

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

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

What is the organization aiming to accomplish?

What are the organization's key strategies for making this happen?

What are the organization's capabilities for doing this?

How will they know if they are making progress?

What have they accomplished so far and what's next?

Conflict, climate change, unemployed, underemployed, and homeless are among the identified causes for the increase in food insecurity and hunger, both of which have continued to increase in 2019 in some areas of the world. The authors suggest that “climate change not only magnifies problems of food insecurity and nutrition, but can also contribute to a further downward spiral into conflict, protracted crisis, and continued fragility.” Although this report identifies an increase in global hunger we at the House of the Nazarene can focus on Hunger, Support, Education, Food, Bibles, Prayer, and Healing in the sphere we are capable of giving to as donations increase our sphere of giving will also increase.

We at House of the Nazarene are moved and inspired by our Christian belief that every person has intrinsic value and that it's our responsibility to advocate for the poor and marginalized without regard to race, creed, or nationality and without adverse distinction of any kind. We serve without stipulation or expectation and on the basis of need alone. We strive to respect the culture and customs of the people we serve in order to preserve their humanity and dignity. Our view of poverty is holistic and complex. We honor the people we serve by inviting them to contribute to the process. We are grateful to be invited into the communities we serve and work side-by-side with local leaders responding to their needs with transformative solutions, which are both sustainable and implemented at the hands of the communities themselves. We provide life-changing resources such as food, educational opportunities to families, vocational training as capable, counseling, Bibles, support, prayer, and empowerment in the midst of unimaginable hardships.

We at House of the Nazarene have worked since 1993 to serve to whom we may serve as our capabilities expand and our volunteer system increases through purposeful relief and development. Our methodology is holistic; it is characterized by the treatment of the whole person, taking into account mental and social factors, rather than just the symptoms of the situation the family finds itself in. And we are informed by our Christian beliefs that every person has intrinsic value and that it is our responsibility to advocate for the poor and the marginalized. We at the House of the Nazarene can focus on Hunger, Support, Education, Food, Bibles, Prayer, and Healing in the sphere we are capable of giving to as donations increase our sphere of giving will also increase. We are looking to have thousands of donors to help us accomplish our work, including individuals, churches, foundations, corporations, other institutions, and governments.

We at House of the Nazarene are always making progress but at the same time as we're making progress, we see that there is so much more work to do!

We at House of the Nazarene have supplied Support, Education, Food, Bibles, Prayer, and Healing in the sphere we are capable of giving to as donations increase our sphere of giving will also increase! Our purpose is to reach out to a fallen world with a positive note, gesture, praise, inspiration, song, image, Daily Devotion, and Word from God that uplifts their moment or day with the end result being a life transformed and "built up" by the Word of God and His Spirit. We Praise God for this opportunity. We will continue to grow this worldwide work and ministry reaching men, women, and children, with the hope of increasing the Kingdom of God, in his service, as a co-partaker in His work!
