God Cares Outreach is a registered Non-Profit Organization based in the nation of Belize, dedicated to extending the reach of the gospel beyond the traditional confines of the church walls. Founded in 2014 by Derrick and Valentine Pitts. The organization was born out of a deep desire to address hunger and vulnerability, particularly among children and young people in at-risk communities.
Initially, God Cares Outreach began by providing meals and educational assistance to 50 young people in the community. The outreach quickly expanded, with single mother expressing their gratitude for the support provided to their children. The community's narrative began to change as both young people and their parents started to attending the local Church.
God Cares Outreach driven by the conviction that the local church, as instituted by Jesus, holds the key to genuine transformation. While the organization plays a pivotal role in providing assistance and support, its ultimate goal is to empower local pastors and churches to be agents of change through the love of Christ. The focus is on encouraging lives to transformation and expanding the kingdom of God.
