Poverty Workshop Helps Service Providers Understand Poverty

A group called Progress Village in Traverse City organized an event called Introduction to Poverty 101, to help local service providers understand the facts, myths, and realities of living in poverty. Progress Village is made up of people who've struggled with poverty and are now working with the Traverse Bay Poverty Reduction Initiative to provide community outreach. Watch the video to find out more about Progress Village and the event.

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.
