Anti-Poverty Initiative

Getting Ahead in a Just Getting By World is offered twice a year in the Spring and in the Fall.  Up to 12 individuals are invited  to the facilitated class.  The participants in the class are called “investigators” as they are investigating how poverty has impacted their lives.  During the 16-20 class periods the investigators are learning new skills, researching resources in their life and in their community to build a brighter future story.  To learn more about the program or request an application, please contact our office.
