Mission Statement

Broken But Not Destroyed Corp. is a non-profit organization that strives to provide the highest quality of shelter services to homeless women, men and children. It was founded December 2013 by Duane Thompson, who envisioned an environment that brings stability and wholeness to each individual. Kayde Thompson, the director of Broken But Not Destroyed cultivated the unique My Life Map program, which is structured to the individual based on their personal issues.

A life map is formalized by identifying and pursuing their goals for their lives. Furthermore the program assists with finding low income housing, jobs through Hempstead Works, receiving mental health care at Pennisula Counselor session and even credit repair services through creditkarma.com.

The My Life Map program is also coupled with a recreation program that prepares them to return into society by providing trips, activities, and workshops. Additionally, each client is met by a social worker or the director for a monthly progress report review. As the name suggests, these women and men have been broken down by certain life circumstances, but are not destroyed through our determination to renew their spirit to continue on their life’s journey.


Proverbs 19:17 “If you help the poor, you are lending to the Lord- and He will pay you back.”
