Who We Are
Solid Rock International is a Christian non-profit 501(c)3 organization focused on transforming the body, mind, and soul of the poor in the Dominican Republic.
“Anyone who listens to my teaching and follows it is wise, like a person who builds a house on solid rock. Though the rain comes and the floodwaters rise and the winds beat against the house, it won’t collapse because it is built on bedrock.” –Matthew 7:24-25
In the early 1990s, SRI founders expressed a desire to holistically serve the poor of the Dominican Republic by focusing on all aspects of health. They gave thanks to God for the ability to use their gifts, skills, and resources to provide health to the sick, bread to the hungry, education to the illiterate, assistance to the needs, and proclamation of the Kingdom of God. Today, the mission of SRI remains the same, and we praise God for continued opportunities to live out the vision of our founders.
“For I was hungry, and you fed me. I was thirsty, and you gave me a drink. I was a stranger, and you invited me into your home. I was naked and you gave me clothing. I was sick, and you cared for me. I was in prison, and you visited me.” –Matthew 25:35-36
