Mission: Our organization began its community outreach focus through serving and mentoring over 100 youth from Newport, AR who were bussed over 30 miles each week to our facility in Batesville, Arkansas. Because of logistical problems of transporting these large numbers of youth, we purchased and renovated a 5,500 sq.ft. building to function as a community outreach center for youth and families in the city of Newport (30 miles away). Volunteers spent eight months and over 2,400 hours renovating the building with the help of community support and other local volunteers. Over $30,000 was given locally in cash and materials. The Center is now drawing support from a growing number of local volunteers. Services have grown to provide emergency food and clothes, a youth activity program, the Faith in Action Coalition (Robert Wood Johnson Foundation program to serve the elderly / terminally ill). With additional funding for "Project Compassion" we will launch an after-school program with mentoring, recreation, and homework help; a technology center to serve single mothers, youth,home schoolers, and adult education. A commercial kitchen is 90% finished to begin a soup kitchen for the poor and homeless of the community.
