Center of Life
A volunteer-based, Christ-centered organization dedicated to putting faith and love into action by helping without discrimination the people of Palo Pinto County, Texas, alleviate poverty through faith education and mentoring.
We are a partnership that relies on the generous philanthropy of churches, businesses, and individuals to help those caught in the vicious cycle of poverty. We strive to help alleviate the short-term effects of poverty, but also help each person develop a plan of action to escape the bondage of poverty.
“Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.”
