Programs and results

What we aim to solve

1. Through Olivia's Basket we know poverty is both debilitating and demoralizing. Providing a home for a family in desperate need provides, sometimes for the first time, hope for the future.

Charting impact

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

1. Through Olivia's Basket by providing a home for a family in critical need, we help alleviate poverty in a family, provide better overall health, children attend and are more successful in school, and offer hope to dream for the future.
2. Through Student Adventures we lead formation trips that build self-awareness, teamwork skills,
wilderness abilities and stewardship responsibility.

Continue to build homes for families in desperate need, enlisting willing volunteers to help and sharing the importance of what we do encouraging others to give to hep make this happen.

We have an active Board of Directors who guide us, we continue to raise funds for projects, and the volunteers who help keep us moving forward.

We have built 23 homes for families in need with over 200 volunteers from around the world, led two Student Adventure trips as well as other transformation bike trips. Our future is to keep building homes and offering hope to those in need.
