Navigator Helps People in Poverty Find the Help They Need

Fred Schaafsma is a navigator with the Traverse Bay Poverty Reduction Initiative (PRI). He helps people in poverty by guiding them to the resources they need. Watch the video to hear Schaafsma talk about the rewards and challenges of being a PRI navigator.


Our Township greatly benefits from Network Northwest's experience, depth of knowledge and understanding. Because they work with so many diverse communities in our ten-county region they understand the local land-use issues and are already working on solutions by the time we realize we need some help.
