STATEMENT FROM THE Principal Officer

"The Potter's House Ministry is a community work utilizing the skills of many caring individuals throughout our area. The need within our target group are vast, and require us to draw from this fruitful pool in an attempt to meet basic needs. In essense, we work in the trenches with the neediest of the needy in our community and depend on those behind the scenes for our support. IKE Services, IKE Tutoring and Mentoring Program has made vast progress in academically educating hundreds of children and youth over the last thirteen years. Although IKE Tutoring is just (one) of our programs, it is closest to our hearts, in that it is "the hammer" EDUCATION, that breaks the cycle of poverty. Our umbrella corporation, The Potter's House, established our base of operation in the middle of a rough HUD Housing neighborhood of hundreds of families (all ages), living in poverty. This organization was successful in removing 6 crack houses out of this neighborhood by purchasing them and utilizing these properties to serve the families through various social and christian services over the years. The organizations currently provides 2 shelter residences, 1 education center, a community park, and a full service church. In essence these two organizations, (the Potter's House, and IKE Services) function as a support system to hundreds of families "at risk" in the Lebanon community. "
