Attack Poverty

Attack Poverty is a global organization that serves locally, adopting pockets of poverty and launching what we call 'Friends Initiatives'. These initiatives are long-term commitments that require mutual relationships and collaborative efforts with local organizations, churches, residents, and stakeholders committed to community transformation.

The local Attack Poverty organization focuses its efforts in North Richmond/Rosenberg through the Friends of North Richmond initiative.  Holy Cross Social Outreach Ministry participates in an ongoing partnership with Friends of North Richmond, most recently in refurbishment of homes. 




Summer Mission 2018

June 18 - 21, 2018

Holy Cross Church partners with Friends of North Richmond each summer in the Summer Mission Program in a couple of different ways:

  1. We work on an assigned home during the weekdays of Summer Mission in the neighborhood doing repairs and refurbishment.  If you'd like more information or want to be involved in this summer's work project, please contact Scott McKee at
  2. We provide food for the entire neighborhood each night of Summer Mission. Friends of North Richmond/Attack Poverty hosts community-wide VBS, sports camps, and other activities.  If you are interested in helping with the dinner activity, please contact Denise McKee at

Come and Experience Summer Mission 2018!
