WHY WE DO IT:
To show compassion by providing valuable boods to those in need while we share the Gospel
WHAT DO OUR SUPPORTERS GET FROM IT?
The fact that they are:
Contributing to the welfare of our Waco Area's disadvantage
Helping fight domestic violence
Assisting seniors with housholds needs
Reflecting God's grace through acts of kindness
What good is it, my brothers, if someone says he has faith but does not have works? Can that faith save him? If a brother or sister is poorly clothed and lacking in daily food, and one of you says to them, “Go in peace, be warmed and filled,” without giving them the things needed for the body, what good is that? So also faith by itself, if it does not have works, is dead.”

Our Mission is to assist families who have gone through domestic violence, homelessness, drug abuse and seniors and are transitioning back to society with tangible goods so that they can get back on their feet. We assist families from all walks of life helping them choose safety over victimization while empowering them. We know the importance to family how much kids are affected by the choices that parents make so we emphasize on child safety. Because we know that grandparents have been forced into parental roles we give seniors the support they need.

Caring through Support, faith, and love!
Our volunteers have over 20 years experience on domestic violence. K W Stephens focuses on the family as whole and we support and empower victims and survivors of domestic violence. We help them get resources in the area so that they can find safety and live free of abuse. We also provide support to friends and family members who are concerned about a loved one
Because rural America are often exacerbated by limited access to support services for victims, family connections with people in positions of authority, a lack of acceptance for alternative lifestyles, distance, transportation barriers, the stigma of abuse, lack of available shelters and affordable housing, poverty as a barrier to care, and other challenges. Abuse victims who live in small communities may be well-acquainted with healthcare providers and law enforcement officers. For that reason, they may be reluctant to report abuse, fearing that their concerns will not be taken seriously, their confidentiality will not be maintained, their reputations may be damaged, or that they may incur even more abuse.
If you are in danger please call 911. You can also call the family abuse center 1-800-283-8401 or the National Center Domestic violence hotline 1-800-799-SAFE (7233
