Our goal is to end the cycle of poverty – for good.

There are 50 million people in the USA who are living in poverty, and 4 million of those reside in California.

To get out of poverty, people need jobs and a career path that affords them the opportunity to build a productive and self-sufficient life.

One of the other critical issues that move people out of poverty is education. The more education, the less likely people will end up in poverty. Finding the right educational path, whether it is in college or in technical career training, is essential.

On an annual basis, Metro meets the needs of 40,000 – 50,000 people nationwide that are struggling with poverty.

But we can’t stop there.

We want to begin by doubling the amount of people we trained and served last year. And we want to do it by partnering with other faith-based and community-based organizations nationwide and by expanding our network of churches.

Join us as we help to end the cycle of poverty in individuals, families and communities.
