CompassionLink is a team of dedicated consultants who partner with missionaries and national churches to create and restore healthy communities.
Here’s what makes us unique:
We educate trainers who train other community and church members, which makes our work self-sustaining and does not require our presence or support to continue.
We care for the spiritual, emotional, and physical needs of individuals and communities. This helps strengthen the hands of a local church or establishes a church where one does not exist.
We are part of a long-term strategy involving missionaries and the national church to reach a community. Along with the local community, we identify assets and needs, working together to develop solutions.
We empower communities by celebrating their accomplishments and progress. We train and partner with them to encourage continued, holistic growth in all aspects of life.

CompassionLink has a dedicated team of people who are willing to grow and acquire new skills as needed and who already specialize in the following fields:
Acute health problems often contribute to poverty because they inhibit productivity and reduce capacity for quality living. CompassionLink can assist by:
