Since 1960, KARM has helped men and women struggling with homelessness, poverty, mental health and addiction to pick up the broken pieces and build a better life—one with a home, job, and loving relationships; a life that is healthy, whole, restored.

Restoring lives in Jesus’ name. That’s the ministry KARM is in 24/7/365.
