FACE is a faith-based community benefit organization resource and training center for families, churches, agencies and businesses that are collaborating for community transformation primarily in the Robinson neighborhood in Fresno, CA.

FACE emerged out of North Fresno Church's long history of intentional neighborhood ministries. From as early as 1969 to the establishment of SART (Social Action Response Team) in 2003, the church has been committed to working with the Robinson neighborhood.

The mission of FACE is to address the needs of struggling families living primarily in the Robinson neighborhood and to mobilize and equip people for community transformation.

The Robinson neighborhood has been identified as an area of concentrated poverty. 100% of students at Robinson Elementary are eligible for free and reduced lunches. Less than a third of parents have graduated from high school.


Caring for Individuals: Healing and Growth

People become healthier as they receive relational, emotional and spiritual support from prayer partners and care teams. Adults and children are welcomed into programs promoting healthy lifestyles and academic enrichment.

Resourcing Families: Stabilizing

Struggling families become more stable when FACE shares and connects them to much needed resources.

Developing Leaders/Entrepreneurs/Partnerships: Training and Mobilizing

Local leaders unleash their talents and are better equipped for community transformation. Social and business entrepreneurs employ the underemployed and hard-to-employ to give community members a better chance at breaking free from poverty.
