The One God – One Spirit – One Body Ministry continues to make a difference in South Los Angeles by providing veterans and the disadvantaged with housing, food and spiritual guidance.

Founded in 1980 by Sister Malaika Evans, the ministry operates out of an eight bedroom, two-bathroom home affectionately referred to as Africa House.

“My thought process was [when opening the house] that since my mother was such a giver and she had pretty much inculcated herself in me to give back, I wanted to do something that had not been done before,” said Evans.


“I have never regretted having this ministry and will never tire of helping those in need. God has been with me throughout the years and I believe He will give me the resources continue to help others. ”

Her commitment has inspired those who have witnessed her generosity to spearhead a fundraising campaign to support the One God – One Spirit – One Body Ministry and retire the mortgage on Africa House, which Evans hopes will become a historical landmark.

Donations of all amounts are accepted at any Wells Fargo Bank. The Ministry’s account number is 686067-2317. The bank routing number is 121042882.
