Vision and Values

Through our work, Elijah’s Promise strives to break the cycle of poverty in our community. We envision a community where no one goes hungry for lack of food or funds; where a good meal is a nutritious meal; where our community learns to steward natural and financial resources wisely; and where we make opportunity available to those who seek it.

Our values shape who we are and what we do. If you asked what compels and guides us in our work, the following things would be at the core of our identity and mission:

  • Ending hunger
  • Breaking the cycle of poverty
  • Promoting healthy, sustainable food
  • Empowering individuals through job training and opportunity
  • Creating businesses that create social good
  • Providing dignity and honor to those we serve
  • Remembering the contributions of those who serve
  • Using our natural and financial resources wisely
