Olive Branch Mission is not in the business of simply giving handouts, glorifying, managing or maintaining human tragedy and poverty, but rather, this great Mission stands firm against enhancing dependency. 

We are in the business of human development, providing opportunity for recovery, restoration, reinstatement and re-entry unto a productive life. Olive Branch Mission remains a place where lost, injured, broken and desperate lives can freely, safely and unconditionally receive help, love and care!
