The Family International is committed to spreading the message of God’s love and hope, and putting this message into action. Members endeavor to follow in the footsteps of Jesus, whose ministry was to “preach the Gospel” and to “heal the brokenhearted” (The Gospel of Luke, chapter 4, verses 18-19).
Our volunteers aid the disadvantaged through a variety of programs, providing humanitarian assistance for victims of disasters; medical aid, food, and clothing for the underprivileged, homeless shelters, meal programs, and refugee camps; visitation programs at hospitals, orphanages, prisons, and institutions for juvenile offenders.
Our volunteer efforts extend beyond providing humanitarian assistance to those in need, to providing spiritual assistance to people from all walks of life. Today’s world is a complex, materialistic one, where the important values of love and faith are often neglected. Family volunteers strive to meet the need by providing counsel and support to young and old alike, helping them in their hour of need.
