MISSION

We who recognize God’s providence and fidelity to His people are dedicated to living out His covenant among ourselves and those children we serve, with absolute respect and unconditional love.

That commitment calls us to serve suffering children of the street, and to protect and safeguard all children. Just as Christ in His humanity is the visible sign of God’s presence among His people, so our efforts together in the covenant community are a visible sign that effects the presence of God, working through the Holy Spirit among ourselves and our kids.

VISION

  • We will make every effort to reunite kids with their families.
  • We will collaborate with community agencies and associations and actively participate in community efforts to improve the condition of families and children.
  • We will advocate with and on behalf of youth to raise awareness in the community about their suffering.
  • Our mission is based on faith and the belief that all children and youth have a right to love, respect and genuine concern. Our individual and shared spirituality will permeate all of our activities.

PRINCIPLES

Immediacy

Kids come to us in crisis, desperately requiring help. We provide for their basic human needs – food, clothing, a shower, medical attention – immediately.

Sanctuary

Kids trying to get off the street are often scared and mistrustful. We protect our kids from violence and degradation by providing safety.

Value Communication

We show our youth, by example, that wholesome, caring relationships are based on trust, respect and honesty.

Structure

Street life is unstable and unpredictable. We provide structure and a reasonable set of expectations to give our kids a chance to focus on their futures.

Choice

We help youth make positive choices. We give them the encouragement they need to believe in themselves and to change.
