Our Mission


Community Ambassadors is a Christ-centered, compassion-driven nonprofit organization committed to promoting and facilitating greater collaboration in order to effectively empower lives, strengthen families, and build better communities.

And we’re back! Yes, another school year is upon us. Welcome, 2014-2015 school year! Parents greet the first day of school with a wide range of emotion. Some of us are elated to clear out the homestead, thinking we can finally get some work done.
