The United States of America is one of the wealthiest nations in the world. Yet, over 40 million people in America live in poverty as of 2016, with 13.8 million of them under the age of 18. Where there is poverty, there is also hunger, job insecurity, crime, homelessness, and despair.
Foundation Matthew 633, Inc. is on a mission to provide an enabling environment to the underprivileged individuals and families for personal growth and independent living through the provision of basic needs, resources, supportive mentorship, training and development of skills and talents.
Foundation Matthew 633, Inc. envisions “a future where underprivileged individuals and families have a support system that enables them gain stability in their lives.”
"THE HUNGRY MAN IS NOT A FREE MAN. HE WHO IS CRUSHED BY MATERIAL CONCERNS HAS NEITHER THE WILL NOR THE STRENGTH NOR THE COURAGE TO RISE ABOVE IMMEDIATE CONTINGENCIES AND TO BEHAVE LIKE A THINKING BEING."
We believe all human beings are equal in the eyes of the Lord; we believe it is our responsibility to provide compassionate care to those who falter and fall; we believe our support can offer a new hope, courage, resilience, and renewed optimism for a better future.
We do not just provide handouts such as food and clothing, our ultimate goal is to get our beneficiaries become productive members of society so that they can once again take ownership of their lives.
We do not just meet the material needs of our clients, we show them love, we embrace them, we give them hope, and we assure them of light coming at the end of the tunnel in a nurturing way that makes them feel at home.
HUMILITY IN SERVICE
We perceive our beneficiaries as partners in progress. While we lend them a helping hand, we do not look down nor talk down on them, and we do not consider ourselves superior to them under no circumstances.
TRANSPARENCY AND ACCOUNTABILITY
We hold ourselves accountable to the people we serve, to our partners and donors, to the community in which we live, to the Christian principles that shape our faith, to our vision and mission statements with the highest level of integrity in our administrative and financial conducts.
