Where’s The Money Go?
As an organization that flows out of following Jesus, we believe in financial stewardship, integrity and transparency. We also know that as a financial partner this same thing is important to you. We understand your desire that the money you give goes where it should be going – to ministry among vulnerable families. Please know that we share that desire with you and it is our aim to maximize every dollar which you send to us in a way to make a difference in the lives of the Mothers and their Children that Jesus has entrusted us with.
