About I Pour Life

I Pour Life was founded in 2011 by Julie Higgins, to empower and equip individuals with social and economic disadvantages to become self-sufficient. The first initiative was in El Salvador, and after five years of coming alongside local leaders, I Pour Life began to launch other sustainable development programs around the world.

Today, I Pour Life operates LifeStrengths for at-risk, marginalized, and homeless youth in Missouri and Texas, as well as a community development and family empowerment program in Kore, Ethiopia for individuals who are experiencing extreme poverty and have been diagnosed with leprosy, HIV/AIDs, and Tuberculosis.

One person and one community at a time, I Pour Life is providing a hand up, not a hand out to people with economic and social disadvantages. I Pour Life is an international 501c3 based in Springfield, Missouri, with satellite offices in Dallas, Texas and Addis Ababa, Ethiopia.

We Believe Anyone Can Thrive.

A person?s value doesn?t need to be constructed or created, it?s already there-?it just needs to be fostered. We begin by helping individuals see the best in?themselves and in others, looking away from their past and towards their future.

We Give a Hand Up, Not a Handout.

Self-sufficiency grows a sense of dignity and pride within a person. Reliance slowly kills both. Our approach is about giving individuals the confidence and resources they need to provide for themselves.

We Have Grit.

Even when it?s not easy, we persevere to reach our goals. When obstacles and setbacks occur, our passion for people keeps us from giving up.

We Are Always Learning.

Both success and failure are opportunities to grow. We believe there?s something to learn from each experience we have and every person we meet.
