Family Support Program

The Family Support Program is focused on providing life’s basic necessities to the families that need them the most in order to have a direct impact on emotional, physical and spiritual development.

Every month, the support packages provide food and basic necessities to families that cannot afford the materials on their own. These deliveries help sustain life but are far more than a monthly food basket; they represent renewal. Renewal of faith in the church and her people, renewal of hope in what tomorrow holds, and a renewal in these family’s belief that they are not abandoned or alone.

We have seen parents and children alike put down the daily burden of finding food, lift their eyes to meet the day and step into the possibility that things could be different. Once this realization occurs, we are able to speak truth into their lives around responsibility, the impacts of life choices, how they can help themselves break out of the chronic poverty around them, and why we do what we do.

The impact on the children is especially clear. It is amazing the difference a daily meal and someone that believes in you can make in the life of a child.
