Committed to a brighter future for children, neighbors and communities.

We consider a healthy neighborhood to be one that is safe, clean, and diverse; one in which it makes economic sense for people to invest and one where neighbors manage change successfully.

"If the topic of housing comes up, our immediate response may not be to think of a congregation, faith group, or even our own church community. Yet, faith groups – whether that be your own church or small work group – can be a strength in our communities in so many ways. From spiritual care and guidance to practical assistance and resources, our faith communities can be one of the solutions to address housing in Waco."
