Everyone has been bringing out their diesel heaters, jackets and extra blankets (if they even have them) to stave…(Read More)

Education Assistance Program Update Thank you to the many people who offered to sponsor Syrian students for the Education Assistance Program this 2016-2017 school year.

Open Doors And Needy Haitian Villages The small team that committed to go to Haiti made it there safely one week ago, and hit the ground running.
