Community Partners

Candle flameWe receive around 25% of funding from church groups, 25% from local and national foundations, and 25% from individuals like you. We also receive funds from business and community groups, the City of Birmingham, and income from WE Gardens and Rush Center mission camps.

Many other community groups, businesses, ministries and non-profits partner with us through in-kind contributions, volunteerism, fundraising assistance, and other forms of program support.
