Home / About / Poverty

Poverty has many different faces and most of them do not show the usual signs that we often associate with the impoverished.  For example, homelessness displays evidence of extreme poverty, but many people, perhaps your neighbor, co-worker or even a member in your Sunday school can also be impoverished.  

Low income, unemployment, losing a job, even divorce can be contributing factors that can impoverish a person or family very quickly. And the signs of their poverty may not be evident for quite some time, but that does not mean they are not in great need.
