Our board members are committed to the vision and mission of the Timothy Center. They give generously of their time in efforts to raise awareness of the social conditions of the impoverished and of opportunities to contribute in alleviating that poverty. They recognize the importance of the centrality of Christ in creation, especially in the lives of every ethnic group which uniquely expresses his image. As such, our board is committed to the whole person, both in a material and spiritual sense.
