Charting impact

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

We aim to partner with different organizations throughout California to provide quality vision care services to less fortunate individuals and share the good news of Jesus Christ.

We plan to offer free vision eye exams provided by volunteer optometrist and free prescription glasses mostly made on same day of events.

We are a startup and been selfing funding our projects. We plan to possibly receive grants to help us fund necessary equipment and mobile eye exam van capabilities

We serviced 930 individuals which is $240,000 of free services without any grants. We can do a lot more with the right funding.
