We serve with families and children who live in the rural communities of Sumter, Macon, and Lee Counties. The majority of these communities are found in the region of Alabama known as the Black Belt. This name comes from its dark, rich soil which used to support an agriculturally driven economy. Nowadays, the Black Belt is known for its generational poverty. Job opportunities are scarce, economic problems are high, and there are no adequate childcare systems for working families needing a safe place for their children. Some of the public school systems in these areas are on academic alert. The combination of these factors contributes to the poverty level and leaves many citizens feeling hopeless.
