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.


Elise, Sarah and Elizabeth of Networks Northwest really made the Speak-Up Kalkaska Event successful, and we look forward to our continued partnership in completing the cooperative Master Plan Process.
