Attack Poverty is a 501c3 Non Profit organization whose mission is to strengthen under-resourced communities through spiritual growth, education, revitalization and basic needs.  Our work involves partnering with the local church to adopt pockets of poverty and launching what we call: “FRIENDS INITIATIVES”. We love bringing together communities of resource with communities of need. Our Friends Initiatives are long-term partnerships with local churches, residents and stakeholders who are committed to community transformation. Our initiatives include: clean water-projects, in-school student support, after school programs, literacy, GED completion, job readiness training and home repair.
