About

 

Sparks will be flying on February 18, 2023, when Ancora Ministries holds our second annual Spark Love 5K Presented by ML Crane Group! All proceeds from this event will be invested in programs dedicated to improving the health and nutrition of kids and families in Central Texas and Guatemala.

 

Ancora Ministries is all about helping kids, families, and communities reach their God-given potential through relationship, nutrition, clean water, education, and health and safety initiatives.

 

We envision a Guatemala where every child has the ability to develop to their full potential through good nutrition, sanitation, clean water, healthy homes, and access to education. A Guatemala where every child knows they were born for a reason, and that God loves them and has a plan for them.

 

We envision a local community where children have access to food even when school is not in session. A community that invests, not only in nutrition, but in the educational, spiritual, and character development of its children.

 

Let's spark something good together! Come, run or walk or cheer, with us as we Spark Love!

Locally, Ancora partners with HaysHope2Go, a program that has provided over 100,000 meals to food-insecure children and families over the past year. Ancora has been an active part of HaysHope2Go, contributing over 10,000 meals. We expect to double that number in the next 12 months.

 In Guatemala, we currently have nutrition programs in 15 communities in the central and southern regions of the country, with plans to add more by the end of 2021. Ancora has impacted over 2000 people and provided nearly 40,000 meals to vulnerable communities in Guatemala over the past 12 months.
