Landmark Restoration A.L.M.S will soon provide services that will offer a wide range of amenities to the marginalized communities, low income, working suffering, homeless regardless of race, color, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, age, nationality, citizenship or any legally protected class to have an abundant life rather than just scarcely existing. A.L.M.S are acronyms for “Abundant Life Ministry Services”.
Jesus declared his purpose in coming. He came for life, full and abundant life and Christ gives abundant life and cares for people. It is not having so much more in this life but knowing and possessing true life! We will welcome everyone, meet people where they are and support the needs of the whole person. Through this 501(c)3 we will share the hope that comes through Jesus Christ.
Landmark Restoration A.L.M.S is the umbrella to the H.O.P.E, M.A.A.P.P, S.O.A.R.R and the 25-35-45 Ministries.
Landmark Restoration A.L.M.S. is a religious charitable organization with an outreach mission.
If there is among you anyone in need, a member of your community in any of your towns within the land that the Lord your God is giving you, do not be hard-hearted or tight-fisted toward your needy neighbor. You should rather open your hand, willingly lending enough to meet the need, whatever it may be. Be careful that you do not entertain a mean thought, thinking, “The seventh year, the year of remission, is near,” and therefore view your needy neighbor with hostility and give nothing; your neighbor might cry to the Lord against you, and you would incur guilt. Give liberally and be ungrudging when you do so, for on this account the Lord your God will bless you in all your work and in all that you undertake. Since there will never cease to be some in need on the earth, I therefore command you, “Open your hand to the poor and needy neighbor in your land.”
~Deuteronomy 15:7-11 New Revised Standard Version (NRSV)

The acronyms S.O.A.R.R stand for “Supporting Others At times of Recovering and Restoring” is designed for individuals who are recovering from any addictions, such as alcohol, drugs, social media, pills and etc… by scaffolding them.
To scaffold is to support during formation, and/or repairs through the 12 Steps:
We admitted we were powerless over alcohol - that our lives had become unmanageable.
Came to believe that a Power greater than ourselves could restore us to sanity.
Make a decision to turn our will and our lives over to the care of God as we understood Him.
Made a searching and fearless moral inventory of ourselves.
Admitted to God, to ourselves and to another human being the exact nature of our wrongs.
Were entirely ready to have God remove all these defects of character.
Humbly asked Him to remove our shortcomings.
Made a list of all persons we had harmed and became willing to make amends to them all.
Made direct amends to such people wherever possible, except when to do so would injure them or others.
Continued to take personal inventory and when we were wrong promptly admitted it.
Sought through prayer and meditation to improve our conscious contact with God as we understood Him, praying only for knowledge of His will for us and the power to carry that out.
Having had a spiritual awakening as the result of these steps, we tried to carry this message to alcoholics and to practice these principles in all our affairs.
But I will restore you to health and heal your wounds, declares the Lord,
‘because you are called an outcast, Zion for whom no one cares.
~Jeremiah 30:17 New International Version (NIV)
We are glad whenever we are weak, but you are strong; and our prayer is
that you may be fully restored.

The 25-35-45 SERVICES
The 25-35-45 Services are designed to feed and clothe any and all individuals who are hungry, homeless and need clothing three times a week. In addition, the pantry would distribute food two days a week to provide food directly to those who may not have enough food to eat and provide a steady supply of fresh produce, dairy products, meats and bread, along with a wide range of canned goods. The clothing closet will provide free clothing for any occasion, everyday clothes, interview or employment apparel, and children’s clothing to homeless and low-income families and individuals. We recognize that each person is worthy and valued simply because they are created by the Eternal One. The name for this ministry came from the scripture found in Matthew 25:35-45:
For I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you welcomed me, 36 I was naked and you gave me clothing, I was sick and you took care of me, I was in prison and you visited me.’ 37 Then the righteous will answer him, ‘Lord, when was it that we saw you hungry and gave you food, or thirsty and gave you something to drink? 38 And when was it that we saw you a stranger and welcomed you, or naked and gave you clothing? 39 And when was it that we saw you sick or in prison and visited you?... Then they also will answer, ‘Lord, when was it that we saw you hungry or thirsty or a stranger or naked or sick or in prison, and did not take care of you?’ 45 Then he will answer them, ‘Truly I tell you, just as you did not do it to one of the least of these, you did not do it to me.
