Nearly 1 billion people around the world live with disabilities.
Many of these individuals and their families live in poverty, pain, and despair.
Together we can change this.
We envision a world where every person with a disability finds hope, dignity, and their place in the body of Christ.

We reach out to families living with disability with gospel-adorned hope.
We extend gospel-centered care through Community Support, Respite, Retreats and Getaways, and Crisis Response.
We connect families with Christ-honoring, disability friendly churches where they find a place to belong.
