Hana Mission (Hana means “one” in Korean) is a Christian non-profit ministry organization dedicated to bringing struggling members of Paterson, New Jersey together to help themselves build a stronger community grounded in God. Together, we strive to shine the light of Jesus Christ as one family.

Our mission is to bring the under-resourced community of Paterson, NJ together as one family under God’s love. Crossing socioeconomic, language and racial barriers, we work with both children and adults to help them regain spiritual and physical health through Christian and academic education, counseling, job training, and various feeding projects.

Our vision is to bring everyone as one family in God’s love (Eph. 2) transcending the differences in ethnicity, language and socioeconomic status.

Dates: March 8-13

Little Lights seeks to reach out to the community at DC. The community is very broken–unemployment, poverty, drugs, sex, alcoholism is very very prominent there. The ministry tries to reach out to all ages. For the kids, LL offers an after school homework club. To the older men, they offer a green team which is like a gardening team. Also, there are programs for older people to help people write resumes and find jobs.

Our vision is to provide hope, love and encouragement to those living in DC by being a light in the midst of all the darkness.

Dates: March 8 – 13
