How can you help?
All partnerships are critical to our success and your help is needed!
Church congregations expand their local mission outreach through prayer, financial support and in-kind donations. Businesses encourage their employees and customers to get involved. Civic groups create awareness with strong networking and volunteer support. Together, we make it happen!
How do we help?
The truth is that many families are just one life crisis away from being propelled into poverty.
We are committed to battle the effects of poverty headon to stabilize families and help move them into a more abundant life.
We are a coalition of local churches, businesses, civic groups, and caring individuals representing community at its very best!
