When our staff gathered a few years ago to discuss ways we can help more people, our conversation led to a shocking realization. Even our staff – those of us who work closest with people trapped in poverty – had more to learn.

The more we talked, the more we saw that before we could do more, we needed to know more. That’s when Poverty 101 was created.

Poverty 101 is a training class that will help our community better understand the unique challenges of long-term poverty. It is designed to provide tools that will help each of us find the best way to engage with the people God puts in our path.
