    Bridges Out of Poverty

    Bridges Out of Poverty represents a powerful tool for change. Based in part on Dr. Ruby Payne’s myth-shattering “A Framework for Understanding Poverty”, Bridges reaches out to the millions of service providers and businesses whose daily work connects them with the lives of people in poverty. This overview will provide participants with an understanding of the thought-process and decision-making of generational socio-economics habits and behaviors.

    Special thanks to LCCC's School of Outreach and Workforce Development for sponsoring this event!
