Congregational Engagement

Focus Area – Poverty

EHF Congregational Engagement increases knowledge and awareness to change mindsets on poverty, explore ways to address food insecurity, and engage in poverty alleviation initiatives.

EHF’s Congregational Engagement initiatives aim to tackle the issues that can interrupt the link between poverty and illness, such as improved food security and nutrition, strengthening social networks among diverse groups, and mental health and wellness. We can also connect congregations and their community partners to training programs such as Bridges out of Poverty that help people better understand the impacts of poverty and what they can do about it.
