"Together we have stepped out in faith to test the waters, and see if we can advance the work of God's kingdom here in Knox Co. by helping eliminate poverty housing from our world. We do this knowing full well as Jesus says in Matthew 25, that when we feed the hungry and house those in need of decent housing we are involved in serving our Lord and Savior directly. 'For as you give unto the least of these my brothers and sisters, you give it unto me.' It is God's work that we are doing, and it is only as we remember that as we go along that we have any chance of success doing it in the years to come."- Jim Ecklund, Executive Director -
