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.

We believe that lasting change starts when you help people help themselves. That's why our programs focus on building that foundation. It's spiritual guidance through practical means. See how your help is making the difference in Mercy Drive.

— Jeremiah 12:2
