While our direct service programs seek to alleviate the suffering caused by poverty, our advocacy and client organizing addresses the root causes of inequality. We collaborate with service providers, coalitions, campaigns, and individuals to make the case for public investment in affordable housing, a dramatically improved food system, and adequate public benefits.

We’re helping our community address the root causes of poverty through:

  • Coalition Building
  • Community Organizing
  • Participatory Action Research
  • Media Training
