The Human Spirit Project was founded on the inspiration of Navy Captain Gerald Coffee. Captain Coffee was a POW in Vietnam for 7 years and suffered through unimaginable circumstances, events, and hardships. His existence during those 7 years was defined by the raw desire to survive, and the faith that guided him through the entire ordeal.
Once repatriated back to America, Jerry Coffee dedicated the rest of his life to sharing the lessons he learned as a POW – a message of faith, hope, and perseverance to help people realize that each of us can “not only survive but go beyond survival.”
Captain Coffee’s guiding principle…
“Reaffirming the invincibility of the human spirit”
The Human Spirit Project is designed to be a platform whereby suffering people can come and seek assistance. We know we can’t meet the needs of the entire world, but we can strive to help as many people as possible.
We are indeed a Faith-based organization, founded not only on the belief Jerry taught us regarding the invincibility of the human spirit, but that the invincibility comes from the design and creation of every individual by the Almighty God.
It’s through Him we have the ability to not only survive but to go beyond survival.
God = Strength in the hearts of those who are hurting!
