Focus Groups are Meeting Now!

The Faith Summit on Child Poverty held in April 2019 was only the beginning of a long-term initiative in Spartanburg to end child poverty. If you would like to be involved moving forward and were not able to attend the Summit or to put your name on the follow-up list, please contact Caroline Goodman (

Four focus groups are meeting the third Thursday of each month at First Presbyterian Church Spartanburg, so you can choose your preference: Early Childhood Education/Childcare, Generational Literacy, Living Wage, and Neighborhood Isolation.

Read our commitment to eradicate child poverty, and show your support.
