WHAT DRIVES US
There are two types of 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.
After many conversations with city leaders, stakeholders and local residents, and pastors, Friends of North Richmond was born! The following year, Friends of Uganda was launched. In an effort to mobilize more churches and set the stage for future growth, Attack Poverty was founded by Richard Logan in 2011 and was granted 501c3 status! We are excited for all that God has in store as we look to the future and empower people to attack poverty in their life and community!
One God, to be Creator and Ruler of the universe; He has always existed outside of the boundaries of time and has shown Himself in history in three distinct persons – God the Father, God the Son (Jesus) and God the Holy Spirit- these three distinctions form the Trinity.
The Salvation of lost and sinful mankind through the shed blood of Jesus Christ by faith alone.
Jesus is the Son of God, sent to earth to be the sinless sacrifice for our sins. He was both fully human and fully God. He was at the creation of the world, and by Him, all things were made. He rose from the dead after three days, and has complete power over sin and death. He will return one day to complete God’s plan of redemption for all who believe, as well as creation itself.
The Holy Spirit is the third distinct member of the Trinity, co-equal to God and Jesus. He has been presented to this world to convict mankind of his sin, and make them aware of their need for Christ. He is present and active in each person from the moment they believe in Jesus as their Savior, and gives us power to defeat sin and the ability to understand God’s truth.
The Unity of the Spirit of all true believers, the Church, the body of Christ. It is God’s primary and intended instrument to serve the poor and bring about community transformation.
The Bible is the story of the redemption of mankind by God. It is the inspired, infallible, authoritative Word of God. We believe the entire Bible points to the work and person of Jesus Christ.
We long to see communities where the poor and marginalized are heard. We empowered individuals to put their faith into action to to see God’s kingdom come to life. When an individual’s dignity is restored in God, flourishment begins to take place.

Children who do not read on grade level by the end of 3rd grade have only a 1 in 8 chance of ever catching up. The global poverty rate could be reduced by 50% if all students completed secondary education. Adults can break the cycle of generational poverty if they are equipped with the tools to overcome barriers.
