Create A Better World



We effectively guide, support and create opportunities for people to build community and make a difference in the lives of others. We are a channel of God’s Love, Grace and Power as we help transform ideas into reality through mindful service.


We have served a multitude of projects such as St Francis House, our local Food Banks, Rebuilding Together, Habitat for Humanity, etc. Scroll down to see what we’ve been up to!


If you have a passion and commitment to making a difference in the world, affinity for volunteer service then we have the perfect projects for you. Work with volunteers and project management skills/experience helpful, but not required.
