Through our Rural Compassion initiative, Convoy of Hope resources, empowers and partners with rural churches through training, mentoring and coaching. We believe their increased presence and partnership with local leaders will help strengthen and enrich their communities.
Poverty and hunger have gained a devastating edge in America’s rural communities. There are approximately 350 consistently poor counties in the U.S. — 300 of those are rural. Such poverty traps children in a cycle that prevents them from receiving quality education, nutrition and health care. This need isn’t spoken of often enough, and we find it unacceptable. We’ll continue working tirelessly to bring positive change to these communities.
