Welcome To Urban Impact
In the shadow of the Super Dome, site of many historic sports struggles; you find another struggle going on. The struggle of life and death. The struggle to overcome hopelessness, addiction, unemployment, and poor education. But more than that, it is a spiritual struggle.
That is where Urban Impact lives. It is in the Central City of New Orleans that UIM strives everyday to create a neighborhood where kids can ride their bikes. Our desire is to make disciples of Christ who bring transformation to their families, their friends, their neighborhood and their city.
For the past 26 years, UIM along with its core partner Castle Rock Community Church, have seen God do amazing things in the lives of people through the transforming power of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Kids who once came to our programs are leading them. Students who once were failing are now thriving. Parents who felt alone in their struggle now have the resources to not just survive but to thrive. A closed blighted school, once an eye sore to the community, now serves as a lighthouse of hope and encouragement.
Thanks for visiting our page, thanks for partnering with us. Read more to see how you can be a part of creating a neighborhood where kids can ride their bikes.
