The Foundation Bricks of Hope for the Soul serve as our mind, body, and spirit guidance system. Organizational strategies, collaborative efforts, specific goals, and all of our ministries are steered by the following:
Directed by Biblical Faith Principles—We will stay humble with a willingness to learn and be challenged; and maintain the spirit of love and realness that we’ve had since our inception, at all times, and give all the credit and glory to God for our success.
Dedicated to Transformation—We will seek for every individual to achieve emotional wellness and healing in every area of their lives—whether mental, relational, spiritual, physical, etc. We will act as an example of the Lighthouse and provide a beacon of hope to empower success in all these areas. We see it as unacceptable for anyone to stay in bondage to anything that is not beneficial for him or her, as well as ourselves not doing everything we possibly can to change that.
Bound by Integrity— We will always strive to be truthful, compassionate, and honest in everything we do and everyone we serve. We will not discriminate or marginalize people of any race, age, gender, socio-economic status, etc. We will be the standard of excellence in how we do people, from the moment they pull into the parking lot to when they leave; in how we respond to people when they call, email, or knock on our door.
Inspired by Responsibility—We strongly believe in not asking anyone to live up to a standard that we do not uphold ourselves. As the Lighthouse, we are committed to being the example and living out our own calling as best we can. We aim to be the best versions of ourselves possible, as we are driven to bring out the same in the people we serve.
Challenged by Creativity—We adhere to the belief that no two people are the same and no two struggles are the same. Therefore, the healing interventions and journey to freedom of no two individuals is identical. On top of that, we are living in a world that is constantly changing and evolving into something new day by day. Because of this, our ways of responding to people and their needs cannot be a “one size fits all” approach, but one that is creatively inspired and uniquely crafted to align intimately and specifically to the needs of each and every person we come in contact with.
Energized by Collaboration—Each individual that becomes involved in our ministry–whether staff, client, or community member—will have value and worth to Hope for the Soul. We will make available the necessary counseling, group and/or community resources, and qualified individuals to help each individual achieve emotional wellness and healing. We will always specialize in ministries for hurting people (i.e. homeless, poor, those with substance abuse/addiction issues, the incarcerated, those who have suffered physical, verbal, sexual, or emotional abuse, etc.).
Strengthened by Hope—We believe God is our Anchor of hope, as it is stated in Hebrews 6:19, firmly and securely planted as our foundation to our Lighthouse and ministry. Everything that Hope for the Soul stands for, and operates out of, comes from our faith in this hope. We believe in who God says He is and what He has promised us; and we believe by faith that He will manifest deliverance, miracles, healing, and transformation for each and every individual that comes in contact with Hope for the Soul. We believe that is the sole purpose of our ministry, and God will not fall short of that.
