To provide financial assistance to individuals and families in our community during times of crisis.
To serve as a beacon of hope for individuals and families who find themselves in distress, when financial assistance
would help to ease their suffering.
Our Founders' Story
JT and Ana Maria Tapias were both born in Medellin, Colombia. Their families provided for them to the best of their ability, but they both experienced difficult childhoods and times of extreme scarcity. As owners of FITmethod 4:13, they feel a responsibility to serve their community by assisting people during their own times of distress by easing their financial burden.
While Manna de Vida was founded originally to serve widows and children in distress, we have since helped individuals experiencing homelessness, and families in need of assistance to buy healthy food. It is our belief that with loving support, people are able to persevere through difficult times and emerge stronger than before.
