45% of Families on Mercy Drive
Live Below The Poverty Line
That’s more than triple the national average. Or, 5 out of 10 families who will stay in poverty within the next generation. Without youth programs or mentorships, this crisis becomes a repeating cycle.
But when we give a foundation — education, life skills, and spiritual guidance, we can make lasting change in our community. It's helping people help themselves.
We call it a change of heart.
You have planted them, and they have taken root; they grow and bear fruit. You are always on their lips, but far from our hearts.
— Jeremiah 12:2
