Church Based Humanitarian Assistance


We believe God intended local churches to make a positive impact on the communities in which they exists. Since the very beginning, churches have been assisting the poor, caring for orphans and widows, and fighting against the ills of society. At The Brook, we support local churches in their efforts to launch and sustain humanitarian assistance. All of our projects are started and maintained by local churches, thus assuring they will be properly directed and maintained.

When The Brook receives a proposal, we look closely to ensure that the leadership has a plan to continue the ministry once our initial assistance is complete. We coach the church in the areas of leadership, promotion, budgeting and volunteer development.

Completed projects include:

Mujer a Mujer Women’s Training Center (Church: Hogar de Fe, Desamperados) — Our donors have provided 30 sewing machines for a ministry dedicated to training women to sew clothes that they can sell to support themselves. This project is active, and responsible for helping women break free of poverty and prostitution.

Entre Tus Brazos by Proyecto Voces (Church: Iglesia Biblica Emmanuel, Guanacaste) — Our team assisted with the migration of this CD project to iTunes and Amazon shops. All the proceeds from the sale of this album online support the ministry that recorded the album. This ministry was responsible for helping one woman quit prostitution, and helps other women to support their families financially.

Casa de la Cultura Youth Center (Church: El Cordero de Dios, Atenas) — Our donors have sponsored the construction of a youth center for the young people of Atenas. The center serves as a place for mentoring, and for students to access the Internet. The church will use the facility to aid in the evangelism of the young people of the community.
