In 1969, thirteen local churches came together with the purpose of preventing and alleviating human suffering. Their inspiration came through their collaboration in helping a family whose home was destroyed by fire.
They decided that an organization that brought all the resources together and could provide assistance to people without regard to their religious affiliation and run by lay people would be an asset to the community.
