Our vision is not only local but worldwide. That is why we sponsor charities all over the world. Our premier charity partnerships are with two organizations near and dear to our heart, Mission Life International and Palms and Souls.
Palms and Souls
Palms and Souls maintains the El Buen Samaritano Community Center in Guatemala. They fully fund the center and ensure it is operational at least 5 days per week. It is a safe place for students to come before and after school to get a hot meal (or two), do homework, get additional education services and to be loved on by the staff and other students. When the students step in the doors they feel valued and take pride in their community center. They are responsible for maintaining the cleanliness and organization of the building. They work together and share the responsibility of keeping the place they love intact and functional for everyone. This is pretty neat to see. Ownership breeds buy-in which is essential for long-term success. Students are also given school uniforms, shoes, and supplies each year. This is not only pragmatic in the sense that they need those items, but having the proper materials has also been shown to help keep them enrolled in school. El Buen Samaritano Community Center is truly a void-filler. It provides meals when money is low, love when fathers are absent, educational opportunity when school is limited, and hope where there is none.
Mission Life International
Mission Life International is a non profit organization that works to provide humanitarian aid for citizens of Haiti. Organizing charitable mission trips, MLI raises funds to build schools, orphanages, and homes for those in need. MLI also educates people about natural health by providing community programs that familiarize people with the benefits of drugless healthcare, MLI works with many organizations to fulfill its purpose, especially chiropractic organizations because chiropractic is the largest drugless healing profession in the world. Dr. Pete has participated on two mission trips to Ounaminthe, Haiti through Mission Life International. There they provided chiropractic care to those without access to healthcare.
