Poverty

Almost 18% of residents are below the poverty line. That means for a family of four, they make $23,021 or less.* Approximately 25% of Marion County Children are below the poverty line.

The Neighbors Served by MCCM window to the right shows our most recent census of the clients we serve.

Conditions in Marion County:

  • TennCare (MediGap) is insufficient.
  • We have limited public transportation available.
  • There is no homeless shelter and public housing has a waiting list.

The goal of the ministries of MCCM is to make more than one month’s difference in the lives of our neighbors.
