About Bridges Out of Poverty

  • Bridges Out of Poverty starts with a set of breakthrough ideas that looks at the link between ending poverty and creating community sustainability. It examines the dynamics of poverty and why we fail to see and act in ways that can make a difference — and how we can start to do things differently.
  • Introduces concepts to local business, organization members, and people within the community that dispels the mental models that all people in poverty and on welfare are lazy, ignorant, unmotivated and abusers of the system, thru the understanding of the hidden rules of class.
  • Fosters relationships across class lines in which members of all socio-economic classes work together to end poverty in their community.
