Our Approach

At the Chalmers Center, we think differently about poverty. Watch the video below to learn more:

We want to flip the script of poverty relief, moving churches and ministries from short-term handouts to lasting transformation.

  • We believe poverty is about relationships

    Poverty isn’t just a lack of stuff. It’s the result of broken relationships that affect all of us—poor and non-poor alike. Real change only happens as Jesus heals these broken relationships.

    We equip local churches and ministries

    We create resources to help you understand poverty differently and equip you to love the poor in effective, biblical ways.

  • We practice what we preach.

    The principles and practices in our resources are proven best practices. We’ve field-tested our ideas in the U.S. and around the world with our partners.
