We know helping people move from crisis to long-term change feels messy and overwhelming. We're here to help!

We’ve studied best practices from poverty experts and learned from experience serving in our own churches. Through resources like the bestselling book When Helping Hurts, we’ve helped thousands of churches address the root causes of poverty in biblical, effective ways.
