through service to others

Providing personal help to anyone in need

If you're looking to do good, you're in the right place.

Our mission is to seek out those who are in need, who may have been forgotten by the world or have been victims of exclusion or adversity, and relieve their suffering.

With hearts that "burn with the love of God," we are on a journey together towards holiness. We are not perfect; we are all broken and in need of God's grace. But by striving to follow the example of Christ, who loves everyone, we know that we can live lives of meaningful purpose and help others to catch a glimpse of God's great love for them.

What does it mean to be a member?

We are a volunteer organization made up of individuals who want to serve those in need regardless of creed, ethnic or social background, health, gender, or political opinions.

The Society is open to all those who seek to live a life of meaning by committing themselves to their neighbors in need.

We provide any form of personal help to anyone in need. This may be through food donations, emergency rent or bill payments, housing programs, advocacy, or employment training, education, mentoring, or other services that personally and positively impact our community.

Membership may look different for different individuals. Whether you are donating of your time or your resources, by becoming a member you benefit from friendships forged in a genuine community of faith and love, prayer and action. 

Our Values

To carry out our mission of providing personal help to those in need, we focus on five virtues that are essential for promoting love and respect for those we serve:

Learning to Read

Frankness, integrity, genuineness


Accepting the truth about our own weaknesses, gifts, and talents. All that God has given us is for others; we can achieve nothing of eternal value without his grace.


Kindness, sweetness, and patience in our relationships with others, exhibited with friendliness and an invincible goodwill. 


We live a life of self-sacrifice by sharing our time, possessions, talents, and ourselves in a spirit of generosity.


We express a passion for the full flourishing and eternal happiness of every person!
