Our Mission

Motivated by our love for God and for others, we partner with local communities and organizations to find sustainable solutions to social and economic problems in Jamaica. 

We accomplish our mission by engaging in the following activities:

  1. Designing and testing new program models to serve individuals living in high-risk communities;

  2. Promoting the development of small social enterprises that provide training and income-generating opportunities;

  3. Undertaking special relationship-building projects;

  4. Providing capacity building support to community-based organizations that work to improve the welfare of the people of Jamaica;

  5. Sharing the good news about Jesus Christ and his sacrificial love for us.

Community Development Initiatives

Empower Youth

We believe that the days of packaging a one-size-fits-all solution to people's needs are over. Through our Young Adult Circle initiative we take the time to listen and to focus on youth so they can be trained, inspired, and motivated to develop personally and to impact others in their communities.

Support Parents

I Can Parent is a parent-led forum that seeks to engage parents who raise children in difficult environments and to work with them to find practical and Biblically-based answers to the challenges they confront on a daily basis.


Income Generation Support

We help individuals and community-based organizations explore income-generating options to support economically disadvantaged individuals in the communities where we work.
