Two New Classes and STARS Program Launching in May!
GETTING AHEAD IN A JUST GETTIN’-BY-WORLD – Thursdays, May 2-August 15, 2019 from 11 am-1 pm at Reach (light lunch will be served).
Getting Ahead helps individuals who want to get out of poverty and make changes in their lives. Unlike a traditional class setting, this small group will meet over a 15-week period to investigate the causes of poverty and what that looks like in our community. This approach empowers individuals to make the changes needed to get ahead in life. Topics of discussion will include: Theory of Change, Rich / Poor Gap & How it Works. Hidden Rules of Economic Class, Building Resources & Your Plan for Getting from Poverty to Prosperity.
This program is funded by a grant from BB&T Bank.

Our newest program, Steps to Attaining Resources & Stability, was written and developed by a collaborative of our own participants and volunteers. We’ve taken valuable information from a variety of sources and our life experiences to create a six-week program to help others recognize their personal strengths, build resources and create their own networks of support. These interactive classes will focus weekly on a different set of resources that one needs in order to thrive, not just survive!
