We are Patrick and Nicole Kalout, a regular couple, living in the Los Angeles area. As founders of “5 Thousand,” we want to introduce ourselves, and share with you some ideas regarding ministry practice and non-profit organizations.
Our goal is reaching out to vulnerable population groups, such as homeless people, people trapped in gangs, people with terminal illnesses, people trapped in the sex industry, people facing financial hardship due to low income, etc. and offer “spiritual friendship” alongside material support by promoting specific causes.
At “5 Thousand,” we believe that faith based organizations only goal must be serving those who really need it (spiritually, emotionally, and materially speaking). Hence, “5 Thousand,” is not nor will ever be a “family business” in which people’s support and contributions will help developing personal agendas (non related with the organization's main goals).
We will promote specific causes, 100% supported by volunteers and people willing to do something to help others, just like you. The following categories represent 3 foundational causes we will be supporting in people's developmental and transformational processes.
We promote health restoration causes incorporating 3 interactive elements in need of balance: spirit, emotions and body.
We promote food security causes to benefit members of the target population we plan in reaching out to and serving.
Here you will find a set of resources related to our ministry activities. Feel free to read/download these materials if you consider it helpful.
We would love to know more about you. Feel free to get in touch whether you feel called to partake of this vision or to request prayers. You can rest assured that your information will not be disclosed, under any circumstance, with anybody else.
