How we help overcome poverty

Poverty is often the result of, and catalyst for, chronic struggles with hunger, addiction, housing insecurity, mental illness, unemployment, educational voids, and various forms of abuse. These interconnected issues continue year after year and generation after generation. That's why we work to meet the needs of the whole person through short- and long-term assistance. Through programs that serve the body, mind and soul, we alleviate the symptoms of poverty, then work to address the root issues that cause it.

Pathway of Hope

The Pathway of Hope is a holistic approach to working with families where caseworkers, instead of providing one time assistance, help people realize their interests and support them in identifying and achieving their goals through a well-defined timeline. We help families break away from the cycle of generational poverty and equip them with the tools and resources they need to reach their goals for a better future. Click here for more info, or call our office at 734-453-5464.
