What We Do

The needs in neighborhoods are real.
So are the solutions. 

Guided by Convoy’s Guest of Honor principle, attendees receive groceries, health services, haircuts, family portraits, career services, shoes, and much more — all at no charge.

At the event, I was happy for my parents, because I knew it would take a lot off their shoulders.

According to the Census Bureau, 11.8% of people were living below the poverty line in 2018. That’s 38.1 million people in the United States.
