Poverty is the most #UNIGNORABLE issue our community is facing today.

Over 135,000 people live in poverty in our own community. Poverty robs children of their true potential, strips people of their self-esteem and steals hope from families that struggle to build lives of stability and independence.

With the largest network of partners in the region, your donation gets results - going farther and wider than any other charitable investment you can make. Together, we move beyond managing the symptoms and work towards ending poverty.

Your donation helps deliver 100+ programs that lift people out of poverty and prevent those at risk from falling into it.
