What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

The problem we address is that 9 out of 10 nonprofits fail within the first 5 years, and women who have a passion/calling to start a nonprofit often lack the time and business skills to grow and sustain one. Our solution is to offer back-office support for front-line women, to transfer best practices, compliancy, and financial integrity, increasing the scale and scope of their organization which, in turn, frees them from the burden of operational tasks, and empowers each to concentrate on their mission. Those under our umbrella are discipled, resourced, and released to pursue their God-given passion.

Give Amore

Give Amore is located in a small community in Western Kenya with little industry other than sugar cane. The average adult earns just over $1 per day and most in the area eat only one meal per day. Most children do not own shoes and nearly everyone lives in mud huts without electricity or any running water having to travel sometimes three to four miles round trip to the nearest creek/stream to retrieve water that is not only dirty, but often contaminated. Unclean water is responsible for diseases such as cholera, guinea worm, typhoid, intestinal worms and more. The leading cause of death among children in Western Kenya is malaria, diarrhea, and pneumonia.

Amore Ministries has 3 focuses-clean water, education for orphans and job skills for adults.

By providing clean water, there will be less illness.

By providing education for orphans, there will be hope for a better future for generations to come.

By providing job skills for adults, you empower them to provide a bright future for themselves and their family.

By providing medical attention, we can help to cure jiggers, a common problem in Kenya.

Many faithful leaders effectively champion causes, even as they notice elements of chaos, confusion, and self-criticism inside. By facilitating healthy vulnerability within loving community, Leading Wholeheartedly empowers Christian leaders to notice their often-neglected internal landscapes, resulting in a rich, abundant ecology of the soul.

Our mission is to provide Christian leaders with an approach and tools for cultivating their inner lives so that their service to others is more deeply rooted, productive, and sustainable.

Our vision is that these leaders would exemplify wholeness as every part of themselves is brought into the light of Christ.

Juveniles United Now, Intentionally Transforming Youth

JUNITY is committed to finding youth who have entered the juvenile justice system, and introducing them to Jesus. We believe that teaching them the Word of God will transform their lives, therefore, reducing the rates of recidivism. JUNITY is a safe place for youth to be their authentic selves, while learning how to live the lives God created them to live. JUNITY is a place where youth will see God’s love demonstrated towards them through one-on-one life coaching, peer support, advocacy, life-skills training such as cooking and sewing, and scholarships to attend college and trade schools. We believe that the Word of God and the strength of His love is powerful enough to transform the lives of every youth in the juvenile justice system. We want to see as many youth as possible leave the juvenile justice system and enter the kingdom of God by following Jesus.

Raising up single parent families to transform generations.

To accomplish this mission, we will:
1. Bring life-giving resources and relationships into the homes of single parent families, providing spiritual and physical provision like daily online devotionals, mentoring, support groups, and crisis assistance.
2. Envision, equip and encourage the Church to father a fatherless generation; to embrace and disciple single parent families and discover what a blessing and a resource they can be.
3. Be a Hub for single parent family ministry activity and events, supporting and partnering with churches and organizations that share God’s vision to minister to these families in relevant ways.

Our Vision:
Seeing single parents and their kids encounter and respond to the transforming love of Jesus and move out of their distress into lives of promise and purpose, and seeing the Church become the primary caregiver to a hurting generation of widows and fatherless.
