Whoever oppresses the poor shows contempt for their Maker, but whoever is kind to the needy honors
God. — Proverbs 14:31 NIV
Connecting people in need to people who care, starting with us.
Living in poverty is hard, and oftentimes leads us to violent outcomes. POVERTY encompasses all walks of life it’s not what we think it looks like. At ITOR we strive to break down barriers and stigmas associated with labels put on life situations, we believe all people should be treated with decency, respect and love regardless their pocketbook size. Living in Poverty comes with insurmountable obstacles as is, our wish is to help you pave your path to prosperity.
Something to ponder. Being poor, an ignorant mind may assume, is to be less than; to be second
class. In all actuality this person that is less fortunate and “poor” is not only so by being the person who
cannot pay their bills, or can’t get the assistance they need to get back on their feet.
Mental health challenges, trauma, addiction, homelessness, hunger just to name a few are all
things that can cause us to be “poor” as well. Poor in our mindset, poor in our spirits.

Hamilton Heights was quick to follow Fishers in 2014, with Carmel and Sheridan opening offices in 2015.
