One trip… One life-changing Experience
We believe there are times when people need a hand up, not a hand down. It is a ministry of presence where we encounter people in need in different stages of life. Through Arise One80, we want to focus on the following causes:
Helping women transition because they come from abusive relationships, addictions, or financial difficulties. We can improve women’s quality of life by providing training, counseling, housing, and support.
Engaging with refugees, immigrants, and migrant workers who need advice in settling into a new culture and country. Through partnering with advocacy groups and other organizations and starting programs that provide immigration consulting and English as a new language class, together we can impact the adaptation process of newcomers.
Mentoring youth who are struggling with behavioral, emotional, relational, and academic issues that puts them at risk. By developing programs that will keep youth in their schools and partnering with caring adults to build meaningful relationships, we can help young people become productive adults and contributing members of society.
