Our Approach

The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy. I have come that they may have life and have it abundantly. John 10:10

Spiritual Development

We believe that every human being is created in the image of God and has great worth and dignity. Through long-term, lasting relationships with parents, children, and residents, we demonstrate the love of God in our community.

Academic Support

Many of our programs center around tutoring and mentoring for children from elementary to high school. Our individualized programs and one-to-one tutoring yield significant results.

Economic Empowerment

Through our financial literacy courses we empower our neighbors to manage personal finances and gain self-sufficiency. Participants have bought their first home, furthered their education, or started a business, often with the help of matched savings.

Alumni Story

To this day, I am grateful for Abundant Life letting me know that it was awesome to be a Christian and thrive, despite uncontrollable circumstances in life.
