As families in Christ, our hearts and lives are transformed by special needs.

We are committed to SERVING Christ and one another, HONORING the children, adults and families who face the daily challenges of disabilities with strength and faith, INSPIRING our brothers and sisters to experience joy in the Lord, NURTURING our walk with Christ, and ENCOURAGING families to support one another practically and prayerfully on this journey.
