Charting impact

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

We are striving to see lives changed for the better. To see people that have been marginalized included. To see families that have been broken restored. To see people that are hungry be fed. To see people that have struggled in school to succeed. To see people that are outside of relationships be restored. To see people unwilling or unable to work get jobs.

We partner people strategically on either end of the societal spectrum providing opportunities of growth for everyone. In some circumstances this is done through programs that are offered such as our food trucks for people within our community. We are also intentionally taking people out of their comfort zones to see the needs of those around them.

We have seen the impact of intentional programing taking place. People on both ends of the spectrum have been willing to walk across the bridges that we have created to meet in the middle. Through various events and programs people have discovered how much they are truly alike instead of different. And also how both ends of the spectrum can help each other out as well.

We have witnessed growth in the impact we are having in our community both in perception and in raw numbers of lives that are being impacted. What's next? The goal is to expand our sphere of influence. Currently our reach of impact is limited to about 5 miles from our organization. We know that the needs in our community go further than we are currently serving so we are looking further north in particular to see how we can replicate this in other locations. We are also looking globally to see if the same can be done through continual service. We know this will again take considerable time and energy but it's worth it.
