“To create a world of belonging, where the abandoned and excluded enter back into wholesome relationships with their fellow man.”

The oldest of ten in his family from rural Iowa, Bob left home to join a religious community of Brothers, where, along with fellow members, he worked for ten years in agriculture with the people of Timor, Indonesia. Upon returning home Bob chose to leave the religious community to marry his wife Dierdre in New Orleans. They share like ministries to the poor and support one another in their work and prayer for seventeen years now. Currently Bob works with homeless families to reestablish their housing, assisting them with accessing housing while they go back to work and strengthen and rebuild their families.
