Back in 2008, our founders found themselves in the worse economic slump since the Great Depression. Being parents and first generation migrants, they were in a prime position to lose everything they had worked for. Instead of conceding, they decided to make a living by assisting others in the same pursuit. From a small desk in their living room, they began operations. Helping one employee secure long-term, steady work turned into assisting a dozen employees. After over a decade of business, countless candidates and families have been assisted in the pursuit of a career - not just a job. 

When we are not assisting candidates secure work, we are working to feed, cloth, and house people spanning from the Southeaster United States to Argentina and the Dominican Republic. We have proudly built hundreds of roofs, fed thousands of men, women and children, and are patrons of an assistive living facility for the elderly and an orphanage for children and teens. 

With our "Be The Change" initiative and in partnership with Believing Ministries, we have proudly fed thousands of citizens experiencing homelessness throughout the Upstate of South Carolina. Each winter, we host Bundle Up Greenville, a coat and winter gear drive. We have had hundreds of donations that we have been able to supply to disadvantaged people in our own backyard.

We believe you reap what you sow, we have made it our mission to plants seeds of goodness around the world.
