We are a community that is a member of an emerging brand new culture, sprouting out of an ancient root of the spiritual nation of Israel. We live like what is recorded of the first believers in the Book of Acts in the Scriptures. Acts 2:42-44 & Acts 4:32-35. Our greatest endeavor is to love one another just the same as the example set by our Master Yahshua (the Hebrew name of Jesus) We, as individuals came from all walks of life along with all sorts of wounds, scars and guilt that we could sense was tearing us apart inside. Although we came from such different places, the longing of our hearts where all the same. We wanted hope and a purpose for our lives. We didn't wanted to be trapped by our wrong ways or live empty and futile lives to build up a world that was obviously crumbling before our eyes. So the journey of each one of us led us to meet this community, we found a hope and a purpose so deeply wonderful and so real that we decided to put all our eggs in this one basket, a response of love. We saw something that had an integrity that many have dreamed about, only to be frustrated by the painful realities of a very deep flaw that always seemed to pop up in humanity, the inability to really get along and stay true through the thick and the thin. We met the community and came face to face with a real life, whose existence we can only attribute to it be a movement from our very Creator. So as response of deep gratitude to be rescued from a life of futility and inevitable heartache, we spend our lives together daily learning the ways of this new culture, loving one another in order that we could protect what we see as so valuable. Our greatest hope is that we could find others who have the same hunger that we had and share with them the dream that has caught fire in our hearts. This culture is a tribal culture where clans interact and serve each other. We are witnessing a restoration of elders, families, husband and wives and parents with their children. Our children are our greatest hope. We want them to grow with compassion for the great plight of humanity and be equipped with the deep wisdom and selfless concern for others that can actually make a significant change in the dark and troubled times on this planet.

Statement of Housing Non-discrimination:
Our community does not discriminate in regards to housing based on race/color, national origin, religion, sex/gender, family status (i.e. having children, not having children, or being pregnant), disability, marital status, sexual orientation, ancestry, source of income, age, creed, personal appearance, political affiliation, HIV infection, military/veteran status, unfavorable military discharge, gender identity or expression, receiving public assistance, or being the victim of domestic abuse.
Our community fits the legal definition of "housing for older persons" * and thus we may restrict membership/residency to those of a certain age and may have limits on child membership/residency in accordance with the law. Our community does not discriminate based on race/color, national origin, religion, sex/gender, disability, marital status, sexual orientation, ancestry, source of income, creed, personal appearance, political affiliation, HIV infection, military/veteran status, unfavorable military discharge, gender identity or expression, receiving public assistance, or domestic abuse.
Because our housing is a single housing unit and requires the sharing of bathroom, kitchen and common space membership/residency may be restricted based on sex/gender in accordance with the law. Our community does not discriminate based on race/color, national origin, religion, family status (i.e. having children, not having children, or being pregnant), disability, marital status, sexual orientation, ancestry, source of income, age, creed, personal appearance, political affiliation, HIV infection, military/veteran status, unfavorable military discharge, gender identity or expression, receiving public assistance, or domestic abuse.
Housing in our community is incidental to employment and therefore fair housing laws do not apply (though employment discrimination laws may).
