Lowering the Infant Mortality Rate in Detroit 1 Baby at a Time
May 17, 2017

"But now, O Lord, you are our Father; we are the clay, and you are our potter; we are all the work of your hand. "  Isaiah 64:8

The City of Detroit and the State of Michigan have significantly higher infant mortality rates than the nation as a whole (19.9 per 1,000 live births compared to a national average of 6.6). One of the contributing causes to the high infant mortality rate is the lack of prenatal instruction and care in underserved communities.  Answering this need is The Luke Project 52 Clinic

The Luke Project 52 Clinic was founded by Rev. Brad & Sherie Garrison of FiveTwo Network's StartNew incubator .  The clinic promotes the health and well-being of the local Detroit population by providing accessible, high-quality medical care for expectant mothers and infants under 12 months of age and to also provides a mobile asset to local congregations to help them reconnect with and begin to serve the communities they are in.  


“Ultimately we’re trying to build relationships through which Jesus Christ can be shared.” Rev. Brad Garrison, Founder, The Luke Project 52 Clinic.


As we go through the month of May and celebrate the front-line men and women who are answering the call Jesus has placed in them, we are humbled by the love of Jesus for all. We want to support even more Christian entrepreneurs like Brad & Sherie.  That is why we created the StartNew Fund for Christian entrepreneurs.  We want to see at least 10 more Christian entrepreneurs come off the sidelines.  As we call them out to step into the life Jesus has asked them to lead, we want to help support them.  Financially and spiritually. 

You can donate today to help us build an army of Christian entrepreneurs that will bring the Word into communities that have been lost for to long. 100% of your donation will go directly to the StartNew Fund.  When you support StartNew, you are supporting the growth of the Kingdom across the U.S.  Donate at www.fivetwo.com/#donate & choose StartNew Fund in the drop-down menu.
