It is a Christ-centered community dedicated to meeting those emergency needs daily by offering food, counseling and housing. It also offers long-term help through structured programs, which focus on spiritual growth, education, employment, life management and recovery from substance abuse. Its goal is to move all people into permanent housing, employment and a personal relationship with Jesus Christ.
