When the body of Christ works together in unity serving the greatest needs, the city thrives.
  • We Inform the Coalition through:
    COPE (Cost of Poverty Experience)
    - This three-hour training gives your group a real-life simulation experience of what it’s like to live in poverty.
    Bulletin Board - We inform the coalition how they can practically meet critical needs in our community.
    Speakers Bureau - We speak to churches and other groups about our community’s greatest needs and how they can get connected and make a difference. We are available for church worship services, Wednesday night meetings, civic groups, Sunday school classes, mission events, etc.


  • We Equip the Coalition by:

    Frontline - A 4-part series for those involved with benevolence.
    Bridges Out of Poverty - Equipping participants to walk efficiently with those in poverty.
    Benevolence Consultations - We work with Coalition member’s staff and volunteers to develop a benevolence program and serve as on-going support to your team.
    Convening pastors and leaders together to collaborate on our city’s greatest needs.


  • We Connect the Coalition by:
    Connection Point Call Center - We receive hundreds of calls each month and connect Coalition member to individuals with critical needs, such as rent, utilities, shelter, home repair & gas.
    Getting Ahead classes - We connect people living in poverty with Coalition members who walk with them in a 16-week cohort class.
    Benevolence Network - We bring churches together to share ideas and resources while collaborating with one another on difficult benevolence cases.

"Here is what we seek: a compassion that can stand in awe at what the poor have to carry rather than stand in judgement at how they carry it."

-Father Gregory Boyle
