Our Method


Restore Merced recognizes the inherent dignity and worth of all human beings

We believe that the overall health of the city of Merced depends upon how we treat our most marginalized residents. What if a whole community came alongside families and individuals who feel disconnected and hopeless? How would a community change if every person saw themselves as valuable? What if we could collectively restore hope and provide opportunities for all to flourish? We believe the result would be mutual transformation and a city that we’re all proud to call home.

This is the very work we believe that God is doing in Merced, and we all are invited to be a part of it. We focus on downtown Merced through Neighborhood Engagement, Economic Development, and Community Training and Mobilizing.
