To develop and implement programs to serve the needs of youth and families, improve housing for the poor, close digital divide, serve as a neighborhood improvement/revitalization/community development center, to improve the quality of life for the neighborhood residents and the total community.
Ministries, Inc. is a 501(c)(3)
organization founded by Lizzie Chapel Baptist Church March 1996 for the purpose of
developing and implementing programs that will address the needs of youth and
families in the local neighborhood. Located
in an economically disadvantaged
neighborhood of approximately 75% African-Americans, our organization is
uniquely suited to meet the needs of the residents. We are African Americans with rooted ties to
the neighborhood where we serve, and not similar to many other organizations
because we live or work in the neighborhood, and are members of the founding institution that has
been in this location for 115 years. As
a result, our model of providing needed services
to those persons not affiliated nor
requiring affiliation with our founding
institution, or any other institution similar to our founding institution can
be replicated in many other comparable neighborhoods.
Manna Ministries, Inc.
is dedicated to “Resurrecting a Dying
Community.” We envision restoring a once beautiful and vibrant community to a
state where its natural beauty is recaptured, where the sights and sounds of a
thriving people are experienced, and where
the benefits of a productive community allows for the power of positive
potential to be birthed in the lives of residents.
