Our founder, Debra Lawhorn, has assembled an arsenal of like-minded individuals dedicated to the war against hunger in the mind, body, and spirit. Despite all the current efforts and agencies in place operating to provide assistance to members of the communities, those agencies and organizations are unable to meet the demand that exists that has been created even more so because of the pandemic in the communities in and around Michigan City, serving Laporte and St. Joseph Counties. We are committed to conquering the challenges by bridging the gap people face at any stage of their life, by establishing cohesive relationships with other organizations, our communities, partners, donors, and volunteers utilizing our personal financial resources to provide Pantry On Wheels "POW" and Our Displaced Outreach Initiative "DOIT" programs assist them wherever their dwelling places may be; whether it's under overpasses, bus stations or encampments. We are honored to be the hands and feet of God's message of Redemption evidenced by love.

We serve based on need alone. Our organization strives to respect the culture and customs of the people we help to preserve their humanity and dignity.
