OUR VISION, MISSION & PURPOSE
Life Exchange Foundation has a “Three Pillar Identity”:
To provide leadership, mentoring, training and counseling for married couples, families, and singles in critical relationship environments through Seminars, Conferences and Retreats in Canada. To bring about the potential for wholeness in marriages, recovery in broken relationships and solutions to freedom from one’s destructive past. To introduce choices and knowledge in how to discover and build healthy and right relationships.
To provide life solutions for underprivileged children and teens in our schools and community that may be struggling with learning and behavioral deficiencies in their academic and social life. To provide prevention and intervention from potential and present destructive life situations and choices affecting their well-being and development.
To provide effective response and solutions to those affected by social injustice in our Canadian and global communities. To walk alongside to empower and enable them to experience life exchange opportunities. To restore value, dignity, significance and assimilation into a healthy and safe environment. To birth, create, build and equip “villages of hope” in these communities to bring positive change in their journey, culture, relationships and quality of life.
