The Poor


"If you help the poor, you are lending to the LORD—and he will repay you!" Proverbs 19:17


Did you know?

The current federal poverty level for a single adult is an annual income of equal to or less than $12,490, for a family of four it’s $25,750. In 2018 11.8% of our population or 38.1 million Americans lived below this line. Each month these people are often forced to choose between food, shelter and basic health services. The issue is a complex one and heavily influenced by factors such as education, family background and geographic context. Through CityServe, we are building partnerships locally and globally which meet immediate needs while also implementing sustainable change for a better future.
