Mission statement

Family Care Foundation describes it mission as follows:

The Mission of the San Diego-based Family Care Foundation is to implement a two-fold plan for the betterment of the global community,

1.) To enhance the quality of life for all members of the community, especially the poor, suffering, or disadvantaged.

2.) To invest in today's children - the leaders of tomorrow - through knowledge and character-building guidance for them, their parents, and their community.

Our mission gives witness to our Christian beliefs and message of love and hope.

Family Care Foundation strives to respond to all people in need regardless of race, religion, national origin or social position. We cooperate with people and organizations from all cultural, religious and ethnic backgrounds in our efforts to bring relief and hope to those in need. We welcome the cooperation and assistance from like-minded individuals, businesses and organizations in helping the poor and disadvantaged.

The world's most precious, yet vulnerable, resource is its children. What children become, and the future society they create, largely depends on what children learn in the present. Children flourish when nurtured in a peaceful, stable environment, with loving, caring parents and communities who teach them positive values. Thus we strive to provide the conditions, training and resources needed to help children grow mentally, physically and spiritually in those values that assure a fruitful and happy life.

Response from ministry

To comment on our Asset Utilization, our strategic plan for the years 2001-2006 includes an important emphasis on increasing long term investments and developing an endowment. A decision was reached early in our history that the focus of our first five years of operation should be on developing our global network of grassroots projects in the field -- "Prepare thy work without, and make it fit for thyself in the field; and afterwards build thine house." (Pro. 24:27)

Our goals in this area have been exceeded. Our global relief and development network now spans 50 countries. As we continue our work to strengthen and build the capacity of these grass roots entities, helping them to grow and become more effective in the servcies they provide, we will also focus on strengthening our asset base and future operations.

We will also continue to put a priority on keeping overhead costs low and emphasize people and project focused resource allocations.
