Mission and Values


We are guided by principles that have been passed down throughout the history of this ministry. These beliefs strongly influence our services:

• God loves children and their families so much that He sent His Son to die so that they could have abundant and eternal life.
• Every child should be taught about Jesus.
• All things are possible in Christ.
• Every child should have a warm and secure place to live.
• People can change.
• Lasting change occurs through caring relationships.
• It is the birthright of every child to have a family.
• The best place for a child to be raised is within a caring family.
• Children and youth should always have something to look forward to.
• Kids and families deserve our very best.
• Every child deserves the opportunity to reach their God-given potential.
