Poverty is a complex social, economic and political issue that a "one-size-fits-all" approach fails to resolve. Investing the time to explore the research, listen to the stories of those in poverty and discover new ways of thinking about policies and systems will create better outcomes. One tool to begin this important journey is the Bridges Out of Poverty framework.
Bridges Out of Poverty is a family of concepts, workshops, and products that help employers, communities, policy-makers, social service agencies, and individuals attend to poverty in a comprehensive way. Bridges brings people from all sectors and economic classes together to explore and discover all facets of poverty, build resources, improve outcomes, and support those who seek to move out of poverty. Bridges brings awareness to the barriers that exist for under-resourced families and individuals and provides the tools to build stable and sustainable communities for everyone.
