Rooted in Community
Little Root Creative invests in local, national and international causes and non-profits through a variety of means.
The organization that will always be near and dear to our hearts is the ministry of Living Water International, based in Houston, Texas but serving those in need world-wide. You can find out more about the water crisis, see their current and completed projects, and find information about upcoming events and trips by visiting www.water.cc
Living Water International exists to demonstrate the love of God by helping communities acquire desperately needed clean water, and to experience “living water”—the gospel of Jesus Christ—which alone satisfies the deepest thirst.
Other organizations we “root” for:

The beneficiary of the 2012 Mayor’s Charity Tea, For Houston’s Kids is a collaborative network of service providers and a movement of volunteers who are committed to ensuring that every neighborhood, school and community of greater Houston produces whole and healthy kids.
Whole & Healthy Children Initiative
A program through Mission Houston, this is a ten-year commitment by volunteers from congregations and the private and public sectors to adopt local public elementary schools with high percentages of at-risk students. The immediate goal is to provide students and staff in these schools with opportunities for relationships with caring adults from the community who can enhance the educational offerings and environments of the schools.
A.R.T. Little Rock / Easter Seals
A program for the severely handicapped introduced by artist, client and friend Mary Lynn Nelson to Little Rock Easter Seals. Developed by artist Tim Lefens, A.R.T. allows those without use of their arms and hands, who have never been able to express themselves through art, an opportunity to do so. While on her continual search for her passion and purpose, Mary Lynn believes God orchestrated events that paved the way for A.R.T. to have a presence in Arkansas.
