About Us

Through our dedicated team and through hundreds of incredible churches delivering our services, people in desperate need are discovering life-changing freedom and hope every day.

Since 2013, we’ve seen hundreds of families and individuals break free from debt and poverty. And as the impact of the cost of living crisis is felt in households across Canada, we know there is much more to be done.

Our core purpose is to equip and empower the church in Canada to help all people out of poverty and demonstrate the gospel of Jesus.
