We are a Christ-centered ministry dedicated to helping others break the cycle of poverty in Parker County – building on relationships with accountability. Our Philosophy There are three areas of poverty: physical, emotional, and spiritual. We seek to address these areas with groceries, financial assistance, mentoring relationships, and sharing our faith. Through our many years of ministry, we have learned through success and failures how to better serve those in need. We strive to be a relational ministry where everyone is encouraged to discover their talents and abilities and find God's purpose for their life.
