Addressing the root causes of poverty with data-driven solutions that align with biblical principles.

Vision, Service & Impact

Vision

Director Lynda Robinson shares what God is doing through the Poverty Reduction Taskforce, what she envisions for the future and how you can be involved.

4Tucson's Poverty Reduction Taskforce tackles systemic issues that cause poverty so individuals, families and communities can thrive. We apply biblical principles in partnership with organizations and those living with poverty to help them build capacity in their lives. As more invididuals, families and communities in Tucson thrive, the city flourishes.

Impact

4Tucson Poverty Reduction Taskforce and Social Services Domain Mobilized members of a working group in discussion to clarify the purposes of joining Economic Opportunity and Development and Poverty Reduction Taskforces and creating a “Connections Café” that meets once a month. “Connections Café” provides a place where non-profits, businesses and organization can share their needs and seek out collaborators. The impact of this discussion was progression from having one group with unclear purpose to having three groups with a very clear focus.
