Our Vision

Originally called Not By Bread Alone, this organization was founded in 1988 to supply cleaning and personal hygiene products to food stamp recipients.  As we learned more about the effects of poverty on the  family we began to expand into other areas of outreach.  Our vision is to give people a way out instead of a handout; to be a source of inspiration and encouragement.  We believe that if we help those in our community who have the least, we not only improve their quality of life, but we strengthen the whole community.

Through Make A House A Home more than 1 million dollars in housewares have been given to families in need.  Proud to Learn has given away more 3000 backpacks plus additional school supplies. Additionally, we've provided 120 computers and distributed more than 5000 books.  The Community Kitchen provides 7500 meals annually.  Our food pantry has a distribution of over 15,000 bags of food annually.  I'm proud to be a part of this dynamic and outstanding program and hope you will partner with us in our efforts.

Donate to a specific project need, for example to “ 20 euros for a wheelbarrow ”, or else to a project generally e.g. “Building a school in Mombasa, Kenya”. You can always donate anonymously. Rather than a one-off donation, you can become a monthly donor. Also a possibility with many projects: donations in kind or donating your time as a volunteer.

Rate it if you happen to know the project manager or if you know more about the project for some other reason. Post your opinion on the project-site, ideally including photos or videos from when you visited the project on-site. You can also ask the project manager questions at any time. Others can use their answers to help them decide whether to donate.
