Building healthy lives is what Outreach is all about. We’ve been a premier provider and champion of quality, life-changing services to the under previledged people in the New Jersey comunnity – the kind that help individuals and their families throughout the New Jersery area cope with their problems, heal themselves and move forward in a more positive direction. We know. We understand. And we’re totally committed to making a difference now and in the future.
To inspire individuals and families to achieve a life of unlimited potential by developing and delivering the highest quality support services.
We are currently moving much more into the apostolic area, ministering to various under previledged areas, with a vision of reaching hundreds of souls with the Gospel of the Kingdom. We distribute lot of Bible tracts, food, clothes every year which are being eagerly taken.
