Global Antipoverty Alliance
This nonprofit initiative focuses on the issues surrounding poverty all over the world. The Penuel Foundation connects with programs that are already established and are working toward reducing poverty in Rochester, NY and around the world.
Issues We Address
Poverty affects lives in countless ways. We have determined some of the most critical issues in hopes of helping families move forward in their lives. Research on the lasting effects of poverty is ongoing, but common sense tells us that having enough to eat is a basic need for survival. Children born into poverty may have changes in brain development due to poor nutrition during infancy and childhood. The lack of stable, affordable housing affects entire families. Imagine the hope a safe, affordable home could provide.
Solutions We Support
To address the pervasive effects of poverty, The Penuel Foundation works with nonprofits, businesses, and other like-minded organizations to fund sustainable programs that provide food donations to combat hunger, transitional housing for the homeless, and government intervention to facilitate change.
Once the basics are addressed, it’s time to provide skill training and development so that those in need can search for jobs successfully. We want to empower people to make social change and move beyond the condition of poverty.
