Their ABOUT info:
"We believe in God's power to transform and renew broken communities and to restore relationships. Red Hook is a community in need of this kind of restoration. Once considered to be the crack capital of the U.S., it has a history of crime, drugs, poverty, broken homes and fatherlessness, racism and socio-economic divides. However, the presence and ministry of Redemption Church in this community has and continues to bring hope to many families in need of the life transforming power of the gospel. More than 20,000 residents live in Red Hook, which is 43 percent Hispanic and 36 percent Black/African American. Sixty-seven percent of children come from fatherless homes. These and other issues prevalent among urban-poor communities are why Redemption Church exists in Red Hook."
