Where dignity steps into a place of transformation and hope.


Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls.” ~Matt. 11:28-29

Families being Served with Dignity

Thanks to an accepting community, we have been able to serve over 1,830 families to date, provide 8,442 healthy meals via Dare to Care, had 6,858 conversations over coffee and over 1,100 showers providing dignity in a neighborhood in need of help and Jesus the most.

Solutions for Complex Problems

The Midtown community of New Albany, Indiana has no local grocery or department store and its lack of transportation issues causes our neighbors to walk or ride their bike past acres of alcohol, lottery tickets, and processed food options. This is an open invitation to crime, drugs and sex trafficking.

When Our Helping Hurts

We believe that God created all people, including the poor with the ability to help themselves and others. That means that we do not fall into the routine perpetual feeding and clothing programs of those around us, but equip those we serve with the skills that will create self-worth and self-sufficiency that can change the lives of men, women, and children for generations to come.

Social Issues

Addressing poverty is extremely complex because there are so many interrelated issues. There are sixteen areas of life that must be considered when helping people living in poverty. They are the spiritual needs of an individual, addiction, crime, employment, education, financial, healthcare, housing, identification, immigration, legal issues, possessions, recreation, relationships, security, and transportation. Each individual must be assessed to determine what assistance they need in the crucial areas of life.

It’s Time to go to Work!

Inner cities suffer from substandard education, a severe lack of viable job opportunities and an almost total absence of upwardly mobile neighbors. Exploitive businesses and a relentless, deadly undertow of criminal influences plague poor communities everywhere.

Never in the history of the world is more money being spent on less good than today.

Real Life

We’ve become a Destination

So what does the face of poverty look like?

Well for us, it’s become a place of comfort, hope, and dignity and where many join together in partnership. We are becoming a central resource for people and groups who are interested in connecting with the margins. We need people to invest time and creative energy. We need relational leaders and disciple-makers to lead groups, train/equip and organize ministry initiatives. We need volunteers to engage and express their God-given talents. We need prayer warriors to plead on our behalf.

8th Street Pizza Ministry—We are kicking off our pizza ministry! Our concept borrowed locally from The Table in Portland, is pay what you can afford to pay. You can pay with your time in service as payment. Pay the full amount of the suggested meal price. Pay the full amount of the suggested meal price, plus a little extra to “pay it forward.” Give your time in service to “pay it forward” for your neighbor to enjoy a meal. Everyone is welcome at our table!
