Your local business or organization is invited to host a Bridges Copper Country workshop, free of charge! Workshops typically run one-to-six hours in length and can take place in any location. Using the principles of “A Framework for Understanding Poverty,” written by Ruby K. Payne, workshop participants will observe case studies and run through a detailed analysis to better understand poverty in Michigan’s Copper Country.
In addition, this is an opportunity to connect with the community by sharing funny stories, running through fun exercises together, and coming up with real solutions to real people’s problems. Participants will discover why “middle class” solutions to poverty do not produce the results we aim for, and the lack of stability provided is not sustainable for those living in poverty.
If you have any question, please call, text, or email us! You can find our contact information here.
Bridges Copper Country is a Portage Health Foundation initiative.
