Bridges Out of Poverty receives $50K grant
Moffat County United Way announced Tuesday that it has received a $50,000 Daniels Fund grant to support its Bridges Out of Poverty Program.
Bridges Out of Poverty is a model for economic and social change, sustainability and stability. It inspires solutions to counter poverty. This approach helps employers, higher education, community organizations, social service agencies, hospitals, individuals and others address poverty in a comprehensive way. People from all economic classes come together to improve job retention rates, build resources, improve outcomes and support those who are moving out of poverty.
Getting Ahead in a Just Gettin’ By World classes are part of the Bridges Out of Poverty Program. Getting Ahead is a way for individuals/families who are striving for economic stability to become involved in planning and developing strategies for building communities where everyone can live well. Getting Ahead is a way to analyze one’s own life and to make plans for building personal and family resources. It is designed to be an agenda-free, safe learning experience that can help people make life changes.
