SOS: Partner with Legacies of Success to Benefit the Disadvantaged

In June, Legacies of Success is Christ Community Chapel’s featured ministry partner. CCC is promoting Simple Opportunities to Serve (SOS) at Legacies.

But let justice roll down like waters, and righteousness like an ever-flowing stream.
Amos 5:24, ESV

God wants justice for the oppressed.

His people are to be advocates for them.

How about today?

God’s heart for the oppressed is the same today as in Old Testament times. He works through ministries like Legacies of Success (LOS), a program of Urban Vision. Legacies prays over the disenfranchised, unlike some landlords, who prey on them.

Legacies of Success Community Development Corporation exists to revitalize the North Hill, Akron community by transforming the neighborhood one house at a time. LOS rehabs local homes, providing affordable housing for people in need. It also trains residents to own the safety and desirability of their neighborhood as well as their houses. Changing the lives of the current residents in the name of Christ is LOS’ top priority.

What’s the opportunity?

Prayerfully consider these options:

PRAY – Sign up to be a prayer warrior for Legacies of Success. You will receive a monthly email with three prayer requests/praises for the ministry to bring to the Lord throughout the month. To sign up, contact Barbara Ammirati at:

GIVE – Donate a gift card (in any amount) from one of the home improvement stores to help with items needed inside and out for the homes being revitalized. Drop the gift card off at the Hudson campus church office receptionist desk Monday through Thursday, 8:30 AM to 4:30 PM, and Fridays from 8:30 AM to noon. Please place the gift card in an envelope marked “Legacies of Success.”
