More Than a Race

The Race Against Poverty is an opportunity to take a stand as a community against the poverty that grips many of our own and stifles our full potential. In the face of the COVID crisis, we are working overtime to adapt quickly and help families in crisis stabilize, while connecting people to resources and opportunities to build long term stability and overall well-being.

Together we can build a stronger future!

Support Circles

Support Circles builds relationships that inspire and equip our community to overcome poverty. We initiate purposeful relationships and friendships and partner with families as they develop their own future stories, working to support them in meeting their goals.

Through this community initiative we see people move into long term stability as their dreams become reality, identify barriers, and learn how create a more vibrant community! In the Support Circles initiative, there are many opportunities for individual and community involvement to support this critical work.
