TFNB Your Bank For Life was proud to support Mission Waco’s Annual Celebration Banquet Tuesday night at the Waco Convention Center. This year’s guest speaker was Dr. Brian Fikkert, Professor of Economics and Community Development and Founder/President of the Chalmers Center for Economic Development at Covenant College. He is co-author of the best-selling book, “When Helping Hurts: How to Alleviate Poverty Without Hurting the Poor.”
Mission Waco provides Christian-based, holistic, relationship-based programs that empower the poor and marginalized. They also mobilize middle-class Americans to become more compassionately involved among the poor. Finally, they seek ways to overcome the systemic issues of social injustice which oppress the poor and marginalized. Learn more by visiting their website: missionwaco.org.
