About Us


We help thousands of families annually who come here seeking refuge from persecution and lack of opportunity, hoping for a better life for themselves and their children.They desire to be productive citizens of our country, and our goal is to help them attain the education, skills, and resources necessary so they can succeed. We accomplish this through our programs:

FAITH (Church Planting)

Our Spanish and Creole churches allow people to worship and fellowship in their native language, grow in their relationship with Jesus Christ and be a part of a healthy and loving family based community.

FAMILY (Immigration)

Our Immigration Specialists provide low cost legal family based immigration services. We help families reunite and stay united, moving them along the pathway toward permanent residency and citizenship.

— Assistance of food and clothing.
— Education through English classes, seminars, crisis pregnancy counseling, and referrals.
— Advocacy services allow us to network with community organizations to best serve the community.
