We believe that, in Jesus Christ, God has created an unlikely family out of groups that were once alienated from each other: people of all genders, all ethnic backgrounds, all social classes, and all national origins are now together Under One Roof in the household of God. All peoples are welcome in this new family and our work should be a reflection of the reality that we are no longer foreigners to each other.


The mission of Under One Roof is to comfort and equip the underprivileged within the community of our circle of influence, and to partner with like-minded organizations seeking to participate in the household of God, whose cornerstone is Jesus Christ. In our context, this means:

Welcome Extend hospitality to vulnerable peoples across every societal boundary: widows, orphans, immigrants, refugees, the poor, and seekers of asylum.

Work Serve our neighbor through our work according to God’s economy, which includes using material resources in unconventional ways.


The Bible gives us a deeper understanding of our mission and vision. Our values at Under One Roof are the foundation of what we do. 

Deuteronomy 10:18 He ensures that orphans and widows receive justice.  He shows love to the foreigners living among You, and gives them food & clothing

Ephesians 2:19–21 So then you are no longer foreigners and aliens, but you are fellow citizens with the saints and members of the household of God, built on the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Christ Jesus himself being the cornerstone, in whom the whole structure, being jointed together, grows into a holy temple in the Lord.

Hebrews 10:24 Let us think of ways to motivate one another to acts of love and good works

James 1:27 Religion that is pure and undefiled before God the Father is this: to visit orphans and widows in their distress, and to keep oneself unstained from the world. 

Matthew 25:40 Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me;  I was a stranger and you invited me in, I needed cloths and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me.

1 Peter 4 10-11 God has created each of us for a Specific purpose.  Primarily that purpose is to bring honor to Him, and on way we do that is by meeting the needs of others

Psalms 34:18 The Lord is Close to the Broken Hearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit
