Who We Are

2012

In the fall of 2012, PLI began with two ESL classes, one for men and one for women, at Baker-Ripley Neighborhood Center in Gulfton. Our desire was to provide resources to the most under-served people in our community.

2014

In 2014, we moved into the heart of the immigrant and refugee community to expand our women's ESL classes and children's program. In turn, we hired and trained women from the community to provide quality care and educational services for young children.

2016

In 2016, we launched a mentorship program for men to increase access to career opportunities and professional development. This has developed into a thriving community of American and immigrant men.

2019

In 2019, we piloted the After-School Club, which supports school-aged children through homework help and character development. This is helping children thrive at school and at home.

2020

In the summer of 2020, we doubled our facility space allowing PLI to empower more immigrant and refugee families. We are excited for the opportunities our new space provides.

Today

PLI is honored to walking alongside immigrant and refugee families. By the grace of God, we have impacted over 780 families, represented by 49 countries and 32 languages. We are committed to empowering families through holistic services that transform entire communities.

What We Value

Relationships are key to empowering families and holistic transformation. Our core values are based on Biblical principles and mutual respect.
