On August 16, 2010, Salwa Kasabian interviewed Pastor Nancy Atchley of Powerhouse Ministries about the hidden poverty in Folsom, California. Pastor Atchley acknowledged that there is a "hidden poverty" in Folsom, and there has been for years. People tend to think that all the well off people live in Folsom, while in reality there are hundreds of families living at or below the poverty level of less than $17,000 per year annual income. Assist Local is currently sponsoring a video project to educate the public about poverty in Folsom.

The mission of The Assist Local Network is to connect various members of local churches to work together as ONE BODY to meet needs within our communities such as:
The vision of The Assist Local Network is to promote, facilitate, and lead high quality community service events at which the not yet believing community would experience the reality and relevance of Jesus through the service of Christ Followers, and provide to those who participate an opportunity to share the love of Jesus by serving our community, to invite their not yet believing friends, and to building authentic Christ honoring relationships that will transform them into passionate and productive followers of Jesus.
The Assist Local Network concept was born out of an accumulation of more than 30 years of community service work beginning in Santa Ana, CA. In the late 1970's, Operation Love was co-founded by the founder of the Assist Local Foundation to serve those in poverty in Santa Ana, California. During the time that Operation Love served the community, the City of Santa Ana awarded Operation Love the prestigious LISA Award (Let's Improve Santa Ana community service award) for having the most effect on poverty and improving the quality of life for those in need.

Awesome, we connected!
Someone responded to your Newsletter and is donating a case of tangerines, clothes and a bike. Just so happens I have a little guy with his mom in need of a bike because his was stolen at Christmas. What a huge blessing they're in for!
