Achieving Self Reliance

The best place to find a helping hand is at the end of your own arm.


Addressing the necessity of securing food supply is the first step in helping our community achieve self-reliance.

In the cycle of intergenerational poverty, poor parents raise their children in poverty, who are then more likely to become poor parents themselves. By providing the right tools for parents and poor families in need, their children will have greater chances to get out of poverty and become successful as adults. Learning life skills is the passport out of poverty.

And helping older adults stay meaningfully engaged is critical for their health and the health of our communities. Tapping into their wisdom provides opportunities for lifelong learning.
