Our Purpose

Our organization is dedicated to enhancing our community by promoting various levels of support to individuals regardless of age. We empower women through community events, educational achievement, and mentorship programs rooted in biblical principles. 


Depending on the case, we extend financial assistance to single mothers ages 14-35 and others facing emergency situations.

We are committed to being a pathway for individuals overcoming challenges by offering development strategies to rediscover purpose, rebuild lives, and overcome by understanding God's GRACE and His richness in MERCY.  

Our Declaration

We believe that no matter how blemished one's past is, God has provided power through His GRACE to cover our weakness.

GK has been commissioned to empower individuals by mentoring them with a spiritual approach to healing.
