FCC helps Change Today, Change Tomorrow
by Rick Tipton
Change Today, Change Tomorrow is a Black-women-led nonprofit devoted to eradicating barriers that plague the Black community and other marginalized populations with specific focus on education, food justice and public health in Louisville, KY.
The organization's mission is to protect, defend, and meet the needs of those who have been counted out. Created in September 2019, Change Today, Change Tomorrow is a force of disruptors and changemakers that believe in community power and has served over 50,000 Louisville residents.
One of Change Today's most popular programs, Feed the West (FTW), is a free grocery delivery program born out of the pandemic. By partnering with over twenty local businesses, FTW allows the organization to redirect fresh foods, toiletries, and other resources around the city.
The education pillar of the organization focuses on all BIPOC youth ages 7-24.Their education hub offers in-person and online tutoring and mentoring and has weekly teen literacy discussions as well as more youthful virtual literacy programming. Within the next year, Change Today hopes to be able to open a homeschool cooperative in a community space.
First Christian Church Wholeness Ministries granted funds to Change Today, Change Tomorrow to be allocated to overhead and staff support, marketing, outreach and project materials.
The wholeness grant used to fund this ministry was made possible through your faithful financial support of our church and its ministries and help fund a variety of efforts to make our world a better place.
