Our Mission

Promoting transformational growth through a holistic approach

Our Vision

Transformed Lives, Transformed Communities

The Life Enrichment Center is a Christian-based non-profit organization working to fight the spread of addiction, hunger, and joblessness on the East Side of Dayton.  The East Side is one of the most impoverished areas of the city, but we believe it can be transformed once again into a vital, vibrant community.   To do that, we’ve created a program called Pathways to Growth, which enables us to tailor a plan to address the holistic needs of each participant.  So that we can offer a full range of services, we’ve created strong collaborations with key partners, many of which have offices onsite in our facility.  Services are provided through a posture of “Exchange Charity,” which means that clients are incented to make investments in improving themselves.  This concept is core to everything we do.  We empower our clients to transform their own lives while also encouraging them to contribute their own unique gifts to their community, because everyone has value.
