“Richmond is poised for greatness — if we all commit ourselves to the work required to become truly one city, a city of opportunity for all.”

~ Honorable Dwight C. Jones, Mayor, City of Richmond

 

Our city has for decades been hampered by the crushing burden of poverty on far too many residents and on the community as a whole. That burden takes many forms, from the child who arrives at school hungry, tired and stressed, to the young adult struggling to find adequate employment, to the grandmother worried about the safety of her family and community.

There are no quick fixes or easy solutions to the powerful factors that perpetuate generational poverty in Richmond. But one would be profoundly mistaken to believe that nothing can be done or that a community-wide vision and plan for systemic change cannot be developed and implemented in Richmond.
