Answering the Cry of the Poor (ANCOP) is a Catholic non-profit organization that dedicates itself to proclaiming CHRIST, and the Christian faith, by uplifting the plight of the poor.
Our mission is to be a catalyst for human liberation, uplifting the material and spiritual welfare of the poor by empowering families and the youth through values formation and skills training for a better quality of life, and building communities of stewards for sustained development and social transformation through networking, business and cooperative development.
In unity with the Catholic Church, consistent with the core values of Couples for Christ of which it is a ministry, and recognizing Christ as the center of its work, ANCOP USA seeks to renew and uplift the lives of the poor and the marginalized, to restore their dignity as human beings and children of God, and to influence the spiritual transformation of the beneficiaries and their benefactors.
Live Genesis is SFC's effort to help restore the fullness of God's creation through the following advocacies:
One Life - Love for Life
One Earth - Love for Environment
One Nation - Love for Country
One Hope - Live for Hope
Live Genesis puts action to our belief in God's creation of life, our country of birth and every individual's dignity. This belief is the backbone of all of our projects and activities. Advocacy is not merely activity but a way of life for our members. It is our aim to instill in the hearts of our members the love for God's creation.
