Sustaining Partners are the backbone of our organization. By joining the Sustaining Partner Program, you are helping to ensure that we can continue cultivating equitable solutions to poverty throughout each year and into the future. Check out our membership level options below and how your partnership helps to support our programs and the work we do in our community.

Our Transitional Mentors play an important role in ensuring that our NOW Participants get the help and support that they may need to continue their journey in managing their chronic diseases through a healthier lifestyle after their participation in the NOW Program has ended.

Through CSA Share donations to our pantries, we can ensure that families will have access to fresh, healthy, and nutritious options, rather than the canned and boxed foods they are used to getting. CSA Share donations reinvest in our local economy by purchasing from our local farms.

Our Poverty Education Program is committed to its mission of decreasing socio-economic disparities in our community. All of our paid Poverty Simulation Staffers have first-hand experience of life in poverty.

The Access Congregation Casework program provides free casework services and trainings for families and congregations in Kent County. We currently serve over 100 congregations and their surrounding neighbors.

The mission of Access includes community engagement through education and collaboration. We understand that cultivating solutions to poverty in Kent County is a big job, one that we could not sustain without the help of our community partners and advocates.
