Helping People. Changing Lives.

Our mission is to help low income families move out of poverty by connecting people to community resources, coaching people to help themselves, and calling attention to inequality in Davidson County.

Our Vision

We envision Davidson County to be a place where all people have equal opportunity to reach their full social, civic, and economic potential. To achieve this vision, our aim is to be the most widely-known, the most highly-regarded, and the most results-oriented local anti-poverty agency in North Carolina.
