Our lives are quite different from Jesus, a single, homeless itinerant in an era much simpler and slower-paced than today. But the guiding values we learn from Jesus are timeless and universal.


Our intent is never to make a name for ourselves, but always to empower others.


Our healing, recovery and leadership-development emphasis require a slow, small approach.


We cultivate deep concern for people with physical, spiritual and psychological hurts.


We do our best to stay flexible in order to respond to the needs of the people and situations in front of us. We regularly ask questions, try new methods, and evaluate our efforts.


We believe that age, sexuality, education, social class, economic status, talent, or past experience are not limiting factors. All have wonderful potential waiting to be revealed.


We attempt to challenge the working assumptions of our day when they conflict with providing love, safety, and dignity to others.
