Our Philosophy
As a ministry avenue for members and supporters of the Apostolic Christian Church, we will deliver exceptional restorative services to children and families by honoring our governing values.

Our Values
  • Christian Principles - The Bible, which includes the saving power and gospel of Jesus Christ, serves as the motivation, guide and final authority in all we do.

  • Quality - We will maintain high standards for our services and facilities. Through accountability and creativity we will continuously seek to find new and more effective ways to meet human needs.
  • Integrity - We will be faithful in our responsibilities; we will do what we say we will do. We will tell the truth. We will be honorable in all of our relationships.
  • Stewardship - We will make wise use of spiritual, human, material and financial resources.
