Community Development Hubs Overview
Urban Impact believes that poverty is about more than a lack of financial resources; it’s about broken relationships. Combatting poverty requires building healthy, relational communities through a holistic and multigenerational approach. Our conviction is that the ideal base for cultivating this kind of rich community is a neighborhood church that is resourced and leveraged as a community development Hub. This model comes from the biblical description of a church where, “there were no poor among them.”
As a community development organization, Urban Impact works alongside a neighborhood church to identify the assets and needs of the community. Our present Community Development Church Hubs support schools, encourage stable families, develop leaders, launch business ventures, and organize communities to break cycles of poverty and build hope.
