Urban poor, homeless youth, victims of prostitution and drug abuse-along, impoverished immigrant families – along with anti-mainstream individuals and emerging artists-all who are trying to overcome walls built by victimization and skepticism. SOURCE has been serving the at-risk and unreached since 1987 in one of the most diverse neighborhoods in the country.

a friend and a voice

    To make a lasting impact, we serve physical, emotional and spiritual needs. That is why we follow a holistic approach of Hope and Opportunity. Our goal is to be a friend who serves people’s needs, along with a voice that communicates God’s love and forgiveness.  Our food shelf, community meals and creative events allow us to make contact and build trust to speak Hope and then offer Opportunity for lasting life change through mentorship, transitional homes and life-skill programs.



opportunities & empowerment

    Empowering sex-trafficking victims to get out and not return to the past lifestyle is possible when recovery resources are available. Often accessibility to after-care and supportive community is missing after treatment. Through our Annex Network of prevention, outreach, recovery resources and transitional homes, we’ve established a model that allows partnerships with local organizations and congregations who desire to make an impact in their own backyard.
