Impacting poverty begins with understanding.

You will learn to:

  • Recognize the four causes of generational poverty
  • Understand the hidden rules that create barriers for those in poverty to successfully emerge
  • Identify critical resource gaps that need to be addressed in order for individuals to improve life outcomes.

Bridges out of Poverty helps communities:

  • Move individuals from poverty to self-sufficiency
  • Reduce social costs related to crime, poor health,
    and welfare
  • Strengthen educational attainment and job skills
  • Enhance economic development
  • Improve on-the-job productivity
  • Revitalize neighborhoods
  • Build sustainable communities where everyone can live well

Thanks to a grant from the Maine Community Foundation.
