Getting Ahead in a Just Gettin’ By World

Getting Ahead is a ten-week program, where participants meet twice a week for two and a half hours to examine their own experience in poverty as well as explore issues in the community that impact poverty, such as banking, housing, jobs, and transportation; providing critical information the community can use to take-action to end poverty. Facilitators guide participants through an assessment of their own resources and how to build those resources as part of their move to self-sufficiency. Getting Ahead puts the concepts, tools, and relationships in the hands of people in poverty to make a difference in their own lives and in the life of their community.

Transitions

Transitions is a follow-up program to Getting Ahead. This five-session program introduces participants to community partners,      as they begin to build resources. Transitions allows participants to strengthen the concept of a self-sufficient “future story”.   Community partners present on topics such as, physical wellness, financial wellness and the importance in having a banking home; health, renters, and vehicle insurance, continuing education, resume writing and knowing how to answer questions when applying for employment, and home-ownership.
