SUPPORT OUR MISSION TO END POVERTY
POVERTY IS A MULTI-FACETED PROBLEM REQUIRING A MULTI-FACETED SOLUTION.
At the core of the solution is a change of one's heart and mind, coupled with a strong desire to work together to change the status quo in a sustainable manner. Help us to shelter, feed the poor, and provide our communities with educational and economic opportunities to rise up from poverty.
HOW WE END POVERTY:
We allow the poor to inform our biggest decisions and actions. The solution to poverty may begin with a home, but it does not end there. Our platforms allow us to partner with other organizations, agencies and individuals so that we can be where the poor need us the most.
