Our zeal for education compels us to offer quality instruction to students throughout their life span through preschool and primary centers, literacy programs, vocational training, and secondary and university-level scholarships.
Our health care providers pursue people, not their diseases or conditions, upholding dignity and using best practice guidelines to cure or manage spiritual and physical illness. Our team is committed to demonstrate that every person is worthy of quality treatment, regardless of the obstacles that poverty presents to individuals and families.
Our spiritual growth and discipleship initiatives create discipleship opportunities with program directors, teachers, pastors, and church members. Our team of passionate leaders create safe spaces and assume the role of life coach and spiritual mentor to much of our own staff as well as beneficiaries of our programs.
Family and Community Development
Our Refuge is a community of homes which approximate a family environment with an emphasis on consistency, routine, and supervision. We honor each child’s story, trusting in God’s power to heal wounds and redeem every situation. In the home, caregivers act as role models so that all family members can practice and internalize life skills and can experience stability and belonging. We believe in holistic caregiving because every child deserves an environment that nurtures his mind, body, and soul, and because every child should experience what it means to be cherished.
Our pastors engage their communities through participatory development projects, provide counseling and supportive services for families, and love people inside and outside of the church through home visits, seminars, and curricula for individual, small group, and congregational Bible study.
Our social enterprises demonstrate our commitment to create new job opportunities in a region where gainful employment is scarce, as well as our ongoing desire to generate a greater percentage of our operations budget internally. Currently, our coffee farm, ranch, artisan shop, hotel and restaurant, among others, generate 25% of our budget.
