We engage our communities and equip leaders for God's transformational work among the poor. Our vision is a city where families are transcending poverty, in part because churches and faith communities are helping in ways that are genuinely helpful and empowering. We address practical needs of those struggling with poverty, raise awareness of local social justice issues, and cultivate leaders for an urbanizing world.
