Unto Me

In 2012, over 500,000 Michigan children lived below the federal poverty threshold (annual income of $23,284 for a family of four).  Over 1,000,000 lived in low-income families (annual income of $46,566 for a family of four).

In the city of Detroit, 57% of our children live in poverty.  80% of our children qualify for free or reduced lunch.

“Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did unto me.”
