This year's Rotary District Conference features FCS Urban Ministries Founder Dr. Robert Lupton, author of Toxic Charity: How Churches and Charities Hurt Those They Help (and How to Reverse It).

Bob has invested 46 years in inner-city Atlanta. He left a budding business career to work with delinquent urban youth. He and his family sold their suburban home and moved into the inner-city where they have lived and served as neighbors among those in need, dedicating his life to rebuilding urban neighborhoods where families can flourish and children can grow into healthy adults.

Bob is a community developer, an entrepreneur who brings together communities of resource with communities of need. Through a non-profit organization he founded, he has developed three mixed-income subdivisions, organized two multi-racial congregations, started a number of businesses, created housing for hundreds of families, and initiated a wide range of human services in his community. He is the author of six books, including the best-selling Toxic Charity. Bob has a PhD in psychology from the University of Georgia.

Our District is composed of more than 1800 Rotarians serving 42 clubs from Preston to Ashton, Twin Falls to Ontario and all that’s in between. Our clubs meet weekly for breakfast or lunch or an after work “happy hour”. We get our hands dirty in our own communities and support the work of Rotary International, whether its to end polio, provide clean water and sanitation or support sustainable agriculture or literacy projects around the world.

Our clubs are always looking for new members to bring fresh ideas and new energy. We hope you’ll explore this website to learn more and find a Rotary club in your community.
