Getting Ahead program has been a very rewarding and eye-opening
experience. It was a relaxed comfortable environment and everyone was
passionate and enthusiastic. I highly recommend this course to anyone
interested finding solutions to dealing with poverty issues and
discovering community resources that can help them." -John
didn't fully know what I was about to learn when I took the Bridges Out
Of Poverty Workshop last month but I was surprised at how much
information was covered in one day. Learning about the 'hidden rules'
of economic class and how perceptions limit our understanding of each
other helped me BRIDGE the gap and better appreciate a persons struggle
to transition from poverty." -Brent T.
"Getting Ahead provides the opportunity to take apart your life and analyze it objectively. Then it helps you place it back together strategically (like stepping stones) so that you are set up to reach your goals." -Linda
"Getting Ahead opened my eyes to so much. I learned a lot about myself and what I can do to improve my situation. I am glad that I came and met such great people. This group is the best!" -Colleen
“Circles saved my life. For the
first time I felt like I mattered and that I could do so much more than
just survive. I thought for so long that I would be stuck in poverty. I
thought there was no way out. Now with Circles I know I CAN make my
dreams come true. I feel empowered and able to support my family.
Actually just being around people who believed that my dreams could come
true changed everything!” -Crystal
