Mission Statement: 

Our Vision is to become the central location for benevolent work in Panola County. We desire to be a defender for a precious segment of society that most people have forgotten or people don't have the means to meet the vast need throughout East Texas. We desire to be a hand-up not a hand-out by assisting an individual in education, spiritual advice, and responsibility. We do our best to sow good seed into the lives of those we come in contact with.

We strive:
To provide a safe house for displaced families and individuals;
To assist church in their benevolent ministries;
To provide spiritual advice for those who are struggling with alcoholism and drug abuse and their families;
To provide long term effort for men and women to assist them to become productive members of society through faith based experience and lifestyle;
To teach basic life skills;
To help educate churches and enable them to deal with problems related to drug and alcohol abuse.
