Our Work

POSITIVE

REGARD

Recognizing the role inequity plays in determining the course of someone's life is the first step in minimizing its power.

Taking action is step two.

​Offer Grace.    Tend With Regard.    Give Unconditionally.

Covering the essentials is at the      of our programs

  • It is our goal to give every child a computer and the school supplies needed to get an equitable education.

  • We offer confidence camps for children and workshops for adults.  We know that these tools can combat the emotional trauma caused by poverty.

  • We provide food and personal care products to food pantries and women's shelters.

  • Choosing which essential needs receive attention first is a decision that only a family can make for themselves.  This is one reason why we give families unrestricted money and the dignity to make that choice for themselves.
