KARM serves men, women and children through a variety of progressive ministry programs designed to break the cycle of homelessness.


Reaching the potential God has for KARM largely depends on the quality and engagement of our staff. So, we put a high priority on attracting, developing and retaining fantastic people at our campuses.

Statement of Faith

We believe that God exists as one essence

We believe that God exists as one essence while eternally existing in three persons: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. These three are co-equal and are the one and only living and true God. (Genesis 1:1, 26,27; Psalm 90:2; Matthew 28:19; 2 Cor. 13:14; 1 Peter 1:2; Phil. 2:6)

We believe the Bible is God's word

We believe the Bible is God’s very Word to us. It was written by human authors under the divine inspiration of the Holy Spirit. It is the supreme source of truth and authority for Christian beliefs and living. (Psalm 12:6; 119:105, 160; Proverbs 30:5; 2 Timothy 1:13; 3:16; 1 Peter 1:25; 2 Peter 1:20, 21)

We believe people were created innocent

We believe people were created innocent and in the image and likeness of God, for fellowship with God, but our first parents sinned bringing forth death (which means separation from God) to themselves and their posterity. As a consequence, all people are now sinners, both by nature and by choice, and therefore are alienated from God. (Genesis 1:26, 27; 2:17; 3:6, 19; Romans 3:10-18; 5:12-21; Eph. 2:1-3)

We believe salvation is a gift

We believe salvation is a gift of God and is received by individuals only through repentance and personal faith in Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior. People are justified by grace through faith in the Lord Jesus Christ, apart from human merit, works, or ceremonies. (John 3:16; 10:27-30, 14:6; Romans 3:23; 8:33-39; 2 Cor. 5:17 Eph. 2:8-10)

We believe that people were created to exist forever

We believe people were created to exist forever. We will either exist eternally separated from God by sin, or eternally with God through forgiveness and salvation. (Matthew 1:8; 2:44,46; John 2:25; 3:16; 5:11-13; Romans 6:23; Revelation 20:15)

We believe in the Holy Spirit

We believe the Holy Spirit gives every believer spiritual gifts (ministries) to be exercised for the building up of the body of Christ. (John 10:41, 42; Romans 14:19-21; 1 Cor. 12:4,13;14:19, 23, 40; Ephesians 4:11,12)

We believe KARM is a great place to work! In fact, we were named a U.S. Best Christian Workplace in 2014 by the Best Christian Workplaces Institute. What are a few reasons for this distinction given by our employees? We’re glad you asked….


Being able to worship, pray and share openly in a Christian organization


The people we serve and the work itself


My co-workers and the teamwork, love and support we share


The support I receive from my supervisor

KARM staff and volunteers engage with those in need and develop strong relationships which create hope and a way out of the cycle of poverty and homelessness.
