We hope to offer compassion along with a place to safely talk about your troubles, budget counseling, prayer (if requested or not objected to) among other things. We hope and pray that we are so much more than just a tool for simple financial assistance. We Do Not, however, proselytize! That is not our mission! We are mainly funded by the faith communities: churches, church groups and individuals, which was founded by them as well, 17 years ago now.
