Our Mission:

Accelerate Change.

We are working to establish a hub that combines the best parts of business, hope and faith to change a neighborhood. Want to help?


Our Mission

There are so many good people gathering together and believing we can shape what Merced is heading toward. We are not powerless. We don’t have to shake our heads at the problems. We can make a difference right now.


If you are going to reach people no one is currently reaching, you have to do things that no one is doing.

Get Involved

We don’t have to shake our heads at the statistics in Merced showing that 2/3rds of the kids under 12 in our city live at or below the poverty line. We don’t have to wonder how to help those in recovery get a first job. We don’t have to stand helpless waiting for someone else to help the marginalized neighborhoods of the city.

We can start now.


We strongly believe the adage that if you want to go fast, go alone. But if you want to go far, go together. If you’re for Merced, let’s talk.

Making dents in the cycle of poverty in our city is going to require a lot of hammers. Each dollar helps us keep moving hope forward.
