What We Believe
We believe in the Maslow’s Theory which says certain survival needs must be satisfied first, only then are we motivated to fill our higher level needs. Using biblical and universal principles we promote spiritual, physical, emotional and financial health and wholeness in the people that we serve. Cords of Life understands that things can get difficult when facing life's challenges alone. A person standing alone can be attacked, defeated and overwhelmed, but two can stand back-to-back and conquer. Three are even better, for a triple-braided cord is not easily broken.
We believe it is possible for a person to transcend their cultural conditioning and become a productive member of society. We work with our clients to also help them discover their life's vocation, calling, destiny and/or purpose. Our goal is not only to supply basic necessities, but to also restore the whole person: mind, body and spirit. Through collaborative partnerships we are able to provide our clients with the tools they need to begin a journey of self development.
We envision a world where hunger and homelessness no longer exist and education is afforded to everyone.
