Based on the book, Bridges Out of Poverty: Strategies for Professionals and Communities, by Dr. Ruby Payne, Phillip DeVol, and Terie Dreussi Smith, the workshop addresses poverty at the individual, community and structural/policy levels, with an understanding people in poverty can be planners and decision makers in the process of moving from welfare to work.

Workshop facilitator Anne Seifert is a Lifetime Certified Bridges’ Trainer. Topics covered include:

  • Eleven key resources of a customer/employee
  • Economic realities affect patterns of living
  • Mental models as effective interventions for cognitive and language barriers
  • Principles for improving outcomes with individuals from generational poverty

CEUs are available for SW, DODD and RCH. The $40 registration fee is due by November 10. For more information, contact Diane Bemiller at 419-524-0733, ext. 228 or email dbemiller@toledodiocese.org

“A friend told me about La Posada. I came and I was surprised because it doesn’t look like a shelter. It looks just like a home. I was so glad when they told me we could stay. They’ve been so good to me. Honestly, none of this would be happening if I hadn’t been here. They’ve helped me so much.” – Marquita, La Posada resident
