It’s easy to say child poverty is an important issue. What really matters is what we do about it. Your support is vital to the children in Miami. In every school class of 30 children in our community, 18 live in poverty. Your support throughout the year helps us provide these precious children of God with clothing, school supplies, and educational services.
Children are a heritage from the Lord. Psalm 127:3
The holiday season can be especially difficult for these children. More than 60 percent of the children in Miami-Dade County live in deep poverty. The families of those children will have to choose between celebrating Christmas this year and heating their home or putting food on the table.
Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of God belongs to such as these. Mark 10:14
Child poverty in America is exploding. The statistics are devastating. You help us fight against these statistics in Miami-Dade County with your financial and prayer support.
