Each month a new hour workshop based on Bridges Out of Poverty constructs

About this event

Meeting each first Thursday (beginning March) of the month virtually Keith Adams, Executive Director of Common Heart and Steering Committee member of Thrive! Union, will be presenting a 1 hour workshop introducing Bridges out of Poverty framework to understand and address poverty.

  • Thursday March 4: “Resources = Choices. More Resources = More Choices.” When we think of poverty, we think of a lack of finances. The reality is that there are at least 11 different individual resources that impact upward mobility for a family living in poverty. This session will look at a mental model of resources and how to build them.
  • Thursday, April 1: Getting Ahead in a "Just Gettin-by" World Common Heart invites 12 family leaders to participate in a 17 week investigation of poverty. Investigators are paid for their experience as they help us understand poverty in our community.  They also learn from each other as these amazing concrete problem solvers discover how to build on what they know to get ahead.  We will look at the process and the theory of change that Getting Ahead is based on during this workshop.
  • Thursday, May 6: Keys to Building Supportive Relationships There are so many subtle ways to break relationship with a person whose lived experienced is the instability of poverty. Yet it is driving force of relationships and the resource of building social capital that are essential in being an ally and to enacting a new future story. We will be delving  into how to create relationships that assist with enacting changes needed for a new future story. (An introduction into becoming an Advocates For Change Ally.)
