Getting Ahead

About Getting Ahead:

  • Provides individuals with the appropriate knowledge and skills to successfully transition toward self-sufficiency by identifying the causes of poverty, the hidden rules of economic class, the definition of poverty, the resources that are needed for a high quality of life, stages of change, and how to develop resources.
  • Empowers individuals to make their own decisions regarding moving ahead in life and toward financial stability, due to the program being based on the premise that people in poverty are problem solvers.
  • Creates an environment where individuals can reflect on and examine their lives, investigate new information that is relevant to them, assess their own resources, make plans for their own future stories, offer ideas for building a prosperous community, and choose a team to help them fulfill their dreams.
