LifeTogether = Personal, individualized, long-term support for students in Korean welfare homes
Long-term relationships and mentoring are at the core of all LifeTogether programs, activities, and support. Ideally a connection is made with teenagers in the 3rd year of middle school, generally beginning with EFL tutoring and group activities, allowing a closer one-to-one mentoring relationship to develop naturally over a period of time. Personal relationships and support continue after students graduate and leave the welfare home for as long the students desire.
The most important factor in determining whether a welfare home student will succeed or fail in independent living is having one … one responsible, caring adult … JUST ONE … consistently in their life. – Welfare Home Director MyungHee Park
This principle … establishing and maintaining personal relationships … has become a primary goal for all LifeTogether programs, projects, and activities.
In response to the Christian conviction that God is the Father to the fatherless (Psalm 68:5), and that He calls the Church to take care of the orphans in their distress (James 1:27), LifeTogether was founded to do right; seek justice, defend the oppressed, and take up the cause of the fatherless (Isaiah 1:17).
