About Us

See Our Gifts

MAD exists to provide for the physical and spiritual needs of needy and at risk children and their families. We have community centers in Brazil and the US. We are a small organization whose vision is to change the world, one child at a time. We provide educational tutoring, computer training, food for the families, clothing, some medical care and lots of love. As we meet the physical needs, our hope is that we have the opportunity to show and tell them how much God loves them. Our desire is to see struggling children and their families made whole. We also work with children living in trash dumps in Brazil and we have soccer teams for the older children.


Make a difference in the lives of needy and at risk children, one child at a time.


MAD started as a dream of mine 4 years ago. Our first community center opened shortly after that and our second center opened last year. Our third center is opening as I type. We are a small ministry with a big dream.


Soccer Teams: We are able to reach out to older youth through soccer. It opens a door to build trust and gives us the chance to help these youth. In Brazil there are 10 million street children.

Computer: We just placed our first computers in our Brazil community centers and we are hoping to set up a computer lab in our newest center in Colorado. This will be to help the children with homework but also to teach them how to use and work on computers.

Parenting classes: We work with the parents to help them understand what a blessing their children are. We teach them what is discipline and what is abuse and how to protect their children from abuse.

Project Starfish: A community wide day of care. We cut toe nails, polish fingernails, cut hair, provide toothbrushes and toothpaste and much much more.


We are currently impacting about 200 children in Brazil and several hundred in the US.
