The Father's Heart
"Daddy's not angry, you can come home!"
"For God was in Christ, reconciling the world to himself, no longer counting people’s sins against them. And he gave us this wonderful message of reconciliation." 2 Cor. 5:19
Our mission is to declare and demonstrate God’s love through practical expressions of compassion. It is our vision and our hope that our guests – including those who are homeless, working poor, immigrants, families, and the elderly – would experience God’s love, would know that He cares deeply for them and desires they be restored in all aspects of their lives.
The Father’s Heart Ministries is a 501(c)(3) organization, incorporated in 1997 to fulfill our mission of helping people move from dependency to dignity and from poverty to prosperity. Needs are addressed through a variety of programs – Hunger Prevention – soup kitchen and food pantry where guests can access food stamps, free legal advice from Open Hands Legal Services and social service referrals – KidZone for children and their families, GED preparation, tutoring and ESL classes, men's transition program, and our job-training/mentoring program for teens, Alphabet Scoop. All of our programs are designed to fulfill our core values of unconditional love, acceptance, forgiveness and commitment to those we serve and to help them move forward in life.
