49% of residents live in poverty. 75% of kid's are behind middle class peers on the 1st day of Kindergarten. Old South End students have a 17% chance of getting out of poverty in their lifetime. 39% do not finish High School.
MOSAIC BUILDING CAMPAIGN
Against the backdrop of one of Toledo’s highest concentrations of poverty and highest crime rates, our passion is to see families thrive in every aspect of life: financially, physically, spiritually and emotionally. As part of our “Cradle to Purpose" pipeline, we are rebuilding a 100+ year old abandoned building into a community center (Phase 1) and educational center (Phase 2). Combined with our existing Pre-school operation and our partnership with Baby University, the completed building will serve as an evidence-based knock-out strategy for area families to escape generational poverty.
