Session Details

February 22, 2023 @ 3:40 pm - 4:50 pm EST

Location: Burnett 203


In order for our community to end poverty, we must understand the struggles of those living in poverty. How did they get there? Why can’t they escape? In this workshop, we’ll explore the causes of poverty, compare/contrast generational and situational poverty, and examine case studies of real-life situations families in our community face. We’ll talk about how they survive and why they make the decisions they do. Participants will have the opportunity to weigh in on how one might manage with poverty wages. Led by Dr. Tiffani Gottschall and staff from Blueprints.
