Keeping Families Together and Children Out of Foster Care
Better Together was founded on the idea that people should have a hand up, not a handout. Truly helping those in need requires immediate assistance but it cannot stop there. Our mission is to reduce poverty through work and to protect children by strengthening their families. We want to radically transform society by empowering individuals, families, and communities through the unmatched power of the local church.
How do we do that? We leverage volunteers and Christian compassion to do what the government can never do. We help our neighbors get back to work and through life’s toughest crises such as homelessness, illness, jail, domestic violence or substance abuse, all the while keeping families together and helping them get stronger. We do this by organizing a market that connects the hurting with volunteer helpers who can provide love and hands-on support. The local church is our leverage point as we rapidly scale our proven programs to transform families, churches, communities, and, ultimately, our country.
