ONE FAMILY… ONE PURPOSE is a Christ-centered, non-profit disaster relief organization committed to connecting willing hearts with communities and families in need.
ONE FAMILY… ONE PURPOSE believes that when the body of Christ comes together to serve others, lives are changed – not only the lives of those being served, but also the men and women that selflessly reach out to those who have experienced losses at the hands of a natural disaster.
The past 4 years, teams from Legacy have have helped One Family… One Purpose to build 5 homes – each for a family whose house was destroyed by a tornado.

More information on this project is available on the ONE FAMILY… ONE PURPOSE site.

In 2013, Legacy helped ONE FAMILY… ONE PURPOSE build a home for a single mom and her six children in Little Axe, Oklahoma (outside of Norman), who lost their home in a tornado.
Thurman, Iowa (2012)
In 2012, Legacy helped ONE FAMILY… ONE PURPOSE build a home for a widow and her special needs daughter in Thurman, Iowa, who lost their home in a tornado.
