What We Do
Our vision is to create community and friendship through compassion and service to our neighbors.
Let's save the world right here at home
Our core values: Community. Friendship. Compassion. Service.
Many families are struggling. Families in our area are doing whatever they can to make ends meet. You could support our outreach work which pairs families in need with families who give. You could give children and women in need a hot meal; a warm, safe place to stay; gifts to brighten their spirits; or the basic necessities to simply get back on their feet. This is how we save the world right here from home.
Share with the one who has none.
Our mission is to be a force of goodness

Volunteer, Donate or Spread the Word
What do you want to do? Do you want to help? Do you want to support? Do you want to serve?
The servant-first approach is a way to make sure other people’s needs are the priority. The servant-leader helps others grow by serving them, shows them a freer and wiser path, and ultimately, helps others become servant-leaders themselves. We pay goodness forward, and others pass it on. Good leadership is love.
LOVE is both subtle and infinite, with an absolute condition: vulnerability. When we chose to be vulnerable for the good of others, we hold true power or influence – we spread love. Are you ready to work with 3:11 Project? Let's take this step forward, together...

Transforming yourself and your world
Transformation is bigger than we are, and requires a supportive universe. Each of us can make transformations in ourselves, our relationships, and in our culture. We do this by looking within: we overcome fear and embody a vision of the common good.
The act of transformation is an act of altering our behavior to reflect what we truly value. Being transformational is a choice – a choice to connect to others through service. We each carry a mental picture of what it means to be a leader or what it means to help others. If we want to bring about real change, we need to change this picture to being other-focused.
