Manna Ministries

Manna Community Outreach, Inc. is a 501(c)(3) organization founded by Lizzie Chapel Baptist Church for the purpose of developing and implementing programs that will address the needs of youth and families. Located in an economically disadvantaged neighborhood of approximately 75% African-Americans, our organization is uniquely suited to meet the needs of the residents. We are African Americans with rooted ties to the neighborhoods that we serve, and not similar to many other organizations because we live or work in the neighborhoods, and are members of the founding institution that has been in this location for 113 years. As a result, our model of providing needed services to those persons not affiliated nor requiring affiliation with our founding institution, or any other institution similar to our founding institution can be replicated in many other comparable neighborhoods. We are located in the Bartlett Crossing/Cherokee Heights community in the West Macon area. (US Census Tracks: 123, 124, and 125)

Federal Tax ID 58-2240684
