Event description

Description

“Growing Up in Poverty and It’s Lasting Impact” will provide an in-depth look at the lasting impact of poverty on families and communities. This training will be co-facilitated by a psychologist and survivor of the commercial sex industry who has overcome generational poverty. Participants will hear how people in poverty are not “choosing” to remain in it or being “lazy.” The personal stories will increase our empathy for the daily challenges families experience while living in poverty and struggling to survive. The trainers will discuss strategies for more effectively engaging individuals and families in poverty and ways to empower them. It is imperative to understand challenges poverty presents and to address it as it can be a risk factor for a variety of unhealthy and dangerous situations such as mental illness, gang involvement, involvement in the commercial sex industry, etc.
