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 variety of different ways:

  1. We work on an assigned home during the weekdays of Summer Mission in the neighborhood doing repairs and refurbishment, including painting, sheetrock repair, flooring, cabinet and countertop installation, and more.
  2. We also provide food for dinner for the entire neighborhood each night of Summer Mission.
  3. Friends of North Richmond/Attack Poverty hosts community-wide VBS, sports camps, and other activities.   

Summer Mission 2018 is a wrap!  Holy Cross Church provided a dedicated team of about 25 adults and teens working all week to make this a success and provide a homeowner in need some much needed repairs to his home.
