According to the U.S. Census Bureau, 14.8 percent of people are living in poverty in the United States. In the Dayton region, however, the rate is astronomically higher at 34.7 percent.

But Dayton-based The Gospel Mission, along with the help of several Cedarville University students, is helping to meet the physical and spiritual needs of those in need.

Jenna Parker, a senior social work major from Williamson, NY, and Ashley Belles, a junior psychology major from Webster, NY, have spent several years helping at The Gospel Mission. A comprehensive inner-city mission located near the heart of downtown Dayton, the mission is open to men and women, young and old, of any race, faith or circumstance.
