About The Richmond Area

In the City of Richmond, nearly 57,000 men, women, and children live in poverty – a shocking 25.4% of our community. Approximately 550 are homeless, an increase of 10% in the last year alone.

These neighbors are too often surrounded by barriers built to block them from their potential, from their right to peace and progress.

We didn’t get here by accident. We got here by design. And we'll get out of it by design too.

But only if we confront how we got here (together), get real with where we are (together), and design intersectional and intergenerational solutions with that knowledge (together).

Financial Value of Support Over Time

Thank you to the Giving Wall Supporters for their generosity. They don't come looking for recognition. They come quietly and leave just as quietly, without the need for back-patting or outpourings of gratitude – only the need to do what's right and good.
