Bridges Out of Poverty: FREE Community Session
Tuesday, February 25, 2020,  8:30 - 12:30

"Bridges Out of Poverty is a powerful tool designed specifically for social, health, and legal services professionals. It reaches out to the millions of service providers and businesses whose daily work connects them with the lives of people in poverty." (Aha Process)

Bridges is not a program. It is a research-based framework of concepts, tools, and resources that equip people to reconsider how they approach their clients, their constituents, their neighbors, and their community.

To comprehensively address the issue of poverty, we must look at it through three lenses: Individual, Institutional, and Community. This Triple Lens approach provides a comprehensive perspective on how we as individuals, organizations, and communities can eliminate poverty.

Bridges Out of Poverty is a large framework, rich with resources and an amazing depth of content. It takes a great deal of time to fully cover all of that material through the Triple Lens approach. The greatest level of change happens with the multi-day and full-day sessions. We know, however, that it’s simply not possible for many people to spend a full day in a workshop. We, therefore, offer this 4-hour session that condenses the Bridges material to an overview of its most critical elements.
