These events are all part of our larger initiative that focuses on educating and equipping our community with practical tools to engage those in poverty. These events are geared not only toward nonprofits, but also businesses, educators, and any other sectors that work with those in poverty. We hope that you will join us for any number of these events and invite your staff as well!



Bridges Out of Poverty - Part 2

If you’ve ever worked with someone in poverty, you might have felt a disconnect in the way we communicate and understand one another. This training talks about underlying factors such as family dynamics and hidden social norms that largely determine the effectiveness of our work with those in poverty.

This training will recap as well as build upon the material presented in the August training. Whether you made it to the August training or not, we invite you join us and bring your colleagues! 

This training is part of a larger initiative that focuses on educating and equipping our community with practical tools to reach those in poverty.

Whether you are a nonprofit leader, pastor, school counselor, or judge, you will walk away with practical insights into the population you are serving. We encourage you to bring your staff, and perhaps even use this as a professional development opportunity.
