Young Professionals Ending Poverty
IN PARTNERSHIP WITH
Who We Are
In short, we’re a service based organization looking to give back.
As a young professionals group, we aim to gather with likeminded individuals while promoting the mission and vision of the non-profit organization Friends of Northside through volunteerism, social events, and fundraisers.
Why “ending poverty”?
Our partner organization is part of a larger organization called Attack Poverty. They’re an organization with locations across the globe and while we all know there’s no quick fix or formula to end different types of poverty, we want to be involved in the impact Attack Poverty and their locations are making in undeserved communities.
All funds raised go straight to programs
Friends of Northside has a wide range of services and programs. From child after-school programs, teen mentoring, home repair, ESL classes, GED and revitalization.
When we host profit share happy hours, partner with restaurants, host fundraisers, and volunteer, it’s all with the purpose of making an impact in the Northside community and helping Friends of Northside be equipped to do so.
Foundational beliefs that drive Attack Poverty
There are two types of poverty: Situational and Generational. We focus on breaking the cycle of generational poverty.
Generational poverty cannot be changed with small, soft-hearted plans. It must be directly addressed with great intention through mutual relationships.
Generational poverty is a complicated spiritual, relational, mental-attitude, educational, and financial issue.
