Just as we have a passion for helping families find the right home builder, our passion for advocacy extends much further than our personal lives and careers. Our greatest, and most fulfilling passion of all? Helping those in our community and worldwide who do not have a voice. Whether helping a local mom put food on the table or supporting causes that save women and children from a life of slavery, The Advocate Group seeks to not only contribute our time, efforts, and resources, but also highlighting organizations each month through social media and other outlets that help gain these non-profits public awareness and support. Each month, The Advocate Group will highlight an organization that is changing the world and donate a portion of all proceeds that month to the people and organizations that bring light into the darkest places of our world.
“For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in, I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me...Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me."
Matthew 25:35-40 NIV
