The Compton Initiative

Three years ago, a local church in Paramount, CA launched a partnership effort called the Compton Initiative.  This Initiative represents a forty year commitment to bring restoration and hope to Compton by beautifying the city, one school and house at a time.  The highlight of the Initiative’s work are the scheduled work days.  Four times a year hundreds of individuals, churches, and businesses from in and outside of Compton partner to do a city clean-up day.  On these Saturdays, houses are painted, yards are landscaped, schools are restored, and lives are brightened.  The experience is as much a blessing to the participants as it is to the recipients!
