Church and school partnerships represent the most strategic approach toward community transformation. These two institutions bring people together more than anything else and offer the most holistic opportunity to promote change.

 

The Plan

A church, or partnership of churches, adopts a local school in order to address the complex social needs of youth and their families by providing wrap-around services that link back to the churches involved.

 

Why Churches Are Critical To Changing Our Nation
One significant advantage of churches is that they are located everywhere. There is an average of fourteen churches for every public school in America. They are
closest to the  -needs of the people since they are located in the heart of the community. Churches also offer the largest volunteer force in the nation -- enabling strategic mobilization to bring about lasting positive change. Likewise, churches already have buildings for use in hosting community programs. They also offer a combined spiritual and moral framework for assisting people to make good choices.
Together, We Can Make a Difference!
