Mission Statement: Revolution provides supportive community and supplemental income to women affected by homelessness or facing barriers.
Our Vision: A nationwide community of empowered women who lift one another up and choose hope.
We came from humble beginnings; our founders simply showed up at a women’s emergency shelter at our local YWCA in 2014. They would braid hair, paint nails and listen. Many of the women at the shelter mentioned they had not had positive physical touch in a long time. It became apparent very quickly that as well as housing, food and other basic needs, these women needed community. We saw the huge impact that showing up for our neighbors had. Not just for the women at the shelter, but for us as well, recognizing we are all women who experience joy, pain and everything in between. Regardless of status, we all have inherent worth. From volunteering at the shelter, and seeing the need for community and transitional employment, we grew into a non-profit social enterprise offering two programs every Wednesday.

Our Vision: Empowering children who are orphaned or living on the street, and youth at risk throughout Latin America to have a future of hope and opportunity!
Abogar International Ministries is focused on care for vulnerable and at-risk children throughout Latin America by caring for their physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual needs. While our focus is on the growth and well-being of children, we believe that sustainable child-centric care must include services that preserve, strengthen, and empower families. Families are the core unit that supports a child, a person, throughout their entire lives, while we as their community play a role in its story. We aim to be a part of that invested community that supports these children and their families to flourish in education, job skills, emotional well-being, their faith, and anything that shapes them to be a thriving person. Our present and long-term goals stem out of our threefold focus of Networking, Knowledge, and New Homes. Right now, the majority of our investment and activities is focused on Networking and Knowledge in partnership with local organizations, churches, and businesses in the Guatemalan community in which we serve and live.
