Building Avenues to Opportunity




One in three families in Bartholomew County struggle daily with poverty.



These women, men and children have trouble succeeding in school, meeting basic needs of food, clothing, and shelter, and leading healthy lives. 


This local state of poverty affects all of us. It influences the quality of our local education, the availability of jobs for qualified workers, and the stability of our local economy. It is essential for us to help this growing population of our community who are stuck in the cycle of poverty – to help them is to help ourselves.


We help motivated people step out of poverty and into self-sufficiency in Bartholomew County. By helping those in need succeed, we strengthen our entire community.
