What have CHURCHES done for the inner city / ghettoes
Churches contribute great sums of money to help others, either local or in other states, and even countries. You would have to call the churches in your area to ask what they are doing about inner city problems.
Many act as community centers and run afterschool programs to keep the kids out of trouble and help with schoolwork. Some have food banks to help feed those who are having trouble.
My church hosts homeless people for a week every month and we also host prisoners. We also have a food/clothing/furniture bank. I know we donate a lot of money towards various organizations as well.
Sometimes they host CYO Basketball teams, youth events, things of that nature.
What have inner cities or ghettos done for anyone?
My church started and supports an inner city church. Efforts are made to meet needs there.
