Based on research conducted for the Louisville Institute this year, Rev. Dana Horrell, Ph.D., offers practical advice on:
How to pay attention to class bias when volunteering
How to build relationships with those you serve
How to tap into community assets, not problems

How to start an empowerment ministry (such as mentoring or financial education)
Through videos, case studies and discussion, you will learn how to avoid "toxic charity" and build relationships with the people you serve.
