The Wealthy Poor is a Faith-Based organization designed to touch the lives of homeless and others in need of food, shelter, clothing, and spiritual or emotional guidance. The name Wealthy Poor, although an oxymoron, was inspired by God’s very words. “Looking at his [Jesus] disciples, he said: “Blessed are you who are poor, for yours is the kingdom of God. Blessed are you who hunger now, for you will be satisfied. Blessed are you who weep now, for you will laugh.” Luke 6:20-21 Jesus is simply stating that although one is poor, they are wealthy in Spirit. Hence the name Wealthy Poor. The goal is to empower them with truth, self-determination, and resources.
