Edgewood Elementary is a school here in Lee County where many kids only get solid meals while at school. This means on the weekends, some will not eat a full meal until they get back to school on Monday. We want to step in and help meet this need, among others, through our partnership with Edgewood.

THE IMAGINE INITIATIVE
Can you imagine what our schools would look like if more churches were deeply engaged in supporting them? Can you imagine what that would do to the lives of the teachers, students, their families and the community? We have seen what happens when a church makes a commitment to support a school. And, we want that for every school in the United States. Imagine Initiative seeks to offer help, hope, and healing for the transformation of schools and their surrounding communities.

PREGNANCY RESOURCE CENTER
Pregnancy Resource Center is a network of pregnancy clinics and education centers providing clear and truthful medical based pregnancy confirmation and education for men and women facing unplanned pregnancy or sexual health crisis. We believe a real choice involves knowing all the facts and no one should be forced to decide because they lack support and encouragement.
