Programs and results

What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

Since 1979 we've helped thousands who were in need. Currently, we are experiencing higher volumes of calls for assistance. Twice over the last month, homeless families showed up to our Sunday gatherings to get emergency housing because of anticipation of extreme cold. It seems that poverty is increasing - more and more people are living at or below the poverty line in Kent & Sussex counties. Even the middle class are feeling the pressure with increased debt, stagnant wages, high rent, and lack of financial management. These material challenges negatively affect the emotional stability of those impacted. This creates more substance abuse, domestic violence, criminal behavior, and overall disenfranchisement.

Charting impact

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

Our goal is to lift as many as possible out of the pit of despair and adverse conditions. It's important that both physical and spiritual/emotional needs are met. We desire to be a beacon of hope for those lost in a state of depression and anxiety. We want them to know that they can come to us for help. We will use our resources to help those going through various crisis - rent assistance, emergency housing, clothes, food, feminine products, back-to-school supplies, fuel/electric assistance, toy drive, domestic violence, and substance abuse counseling/rehabilitation. We will also be a resource for those interested in teaching and learning performing arts. Keeping the youth busy with music, dance, signing, spoken word, etc. will help keep them out of trouble. Our arts program will also provide inspiration and entertainment to the surrounding areas. Our goal in 2018 is to reach out to 6,000 people through one of our services.

We started in 1979 with a small bible study group of 8 people. Since then we've grown to over 100 members. We anticipate more growth in 2020. In the last 17 years, we've invested over $1 million in facility renovation/expansion. So far, we've built a reputation for being a compassionate organization that is community focused and philanthropic. So far we've mastered community development in the areas of crisis assistance, performing arts, leadership training, health enhancement, entrepreneurial opportunities, and spiritual enlightenment. What's next for us is establishing improved programs in these areas: Mental health support, Substance abuse counseling/rehabilitation services, after-school and summer programs for youth, life-coaching for seniors, homeless shelter, battered women shelter, and recidivism prevention program for ex-cons.
