Building Self-Sufficiency

Working to help end poverty can be a daunting task. Equipping those who are working to bettering themselves is a great start. Surrounding yourself with supportive people helps too.Women from the House of Ruth meet every weekend about self sufficiency, housing banking, jobs, and other resources. Women met at the First United Methodist Church and worked with members of the Fayette County Ministerial Association and members of Fayette County Community Voices Literacy Capital.

A grant from the Community IMPACT endowment provided women the opportunity to learn valuable tools for their new life ahead.  You can bring about powerful change in the community too. Your gift to the Community IMPACT will be matched $2 to $1 by Lilly Endowment. You give $1, Lilly matches it $2.
