Miss Betty is encouraging everyone to get into a Bible study group and watch God work on your heart. Prayer is so badly needed for the times in which we live.

We perceive self reliance as a means of relying on ones cognitive abilities.  The ability to make choices that are beneficial to the need of the individual is emphasized.  Since we are now endowed with special talents, our program provides a means in which our clients may develop the ability to make good choices, utilizing their God-given talents for meeting their needs.

Our main theme is people helping people.  Everyone will be involved in the process of helping others.  We provide service to donors who in turn provide financial support or labor to enhance our program.
