We talk a lot about living UNITED and a large part of that is having a shared understanding of how everyone in our community is impacted. To help foster a better understanding of those who are living in poverty right here in our communities, we are so fortunate to be able to host Prudence Pease, a National Trainer for the aha!Process, to bring us two Bridges Out of Poverty trainings in our area. She will be in Barre at the Canadian Club on Thursday (a few spots are still available!) and in Newport at the Gateway Center on May 12. We invite all of you to attend. It is our hope that this training supports the shared goal of reducing poverty and creating greater empathy to help mitigate the life issues caused by poverty. These determinants impact each of our United Way Priority Areas of Health, Education, and Financial Stability and there is so much work to be done. Please join us in this training and in this important work.
With your help, we can build the bridges our community needs!
