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.

Core Values

The most important factor in determining whether a welfare home student will succeed or fail in independent living is having oneone 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.

Biblical Foundation

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).
