Our mission is to glorify God by showing the love, compassion and encouragement of Jesus Christ to financially-challenged families in the Canton area through the provision of various forms of emergency financial assistance and spiritual guidance -- all in the name of Jesus.

  • Provide assistance on over 5,000 occasions with: 
    • rent/mortgage payments
    • prescriptions/medical bills
    • car repair/transportation
    • clothing
    • furniture and appliances
    • personal and home care items
  • Distribute baked goods, clothing and miscellaneous items to between 75 - 100 families each week at the Louisville operation
  • Operate a monthly "soup kitchen" including distribution of personal care products in inner-city Canton
  • Provide Christmas assistance to numerous families through the Adopt a Family for Christmas program
  • Distribute over 2,500 Christian books
  • Provide Christian witness, spiritual guidance and encouragement to each family served
  • Achieve 501(c)(3) tax status to offer tax benefits to contributors
