Mission Statement
Our committed mission is to assist those in the African American and Hispanic community infected with or affected by the HIV/AIDS virus.

With kindness, compassion, respect, and spirituality, we serve through outreach, provision of resources, and support other churches and organizations with like goals and objectives.

Ministry Purpose:
• To assist persons and their families infected with or affected by the HIV/AIDS virus.

• To encourage leaders of the faith-based communities (all denominations) to participate in the reduction of AIDS by speaking out on the issue and establishing an AIDS ministry in their place of worship.
