LIFE Community Services was established to confront the dilemmas and crises facing impoverished children today.
When the needs of children in crisis begin to outweigh the capacity to minister to them, action must be taken. Churches, businesses and other organizations are all looking for ways to compassionately confront the overwhelming blight children are experiencing throughout the world.
LIFE Community Services is a direct response to this challenge.
LIFE Community Services ministry started in 1999 when a church (Patria Bible Church) in George (South Africa) saw that some children coming in off the street could not concentrate during services. This was apparently due to the lack of nutrition. The church inquired where these children came from and visited their community. Under the initiative of Myrtle Grimm and Dave Hooper, the outreach started in Parkdene. From these initial visits the ministry to 40 – 50 children was established on a regular basis.
