Understanding People in Poverty

Tuesday, July 18, 6:30-8:30 PM at the BSU student center.

Do you know why people from generational poverty make some of the decisions they make? Even teachers who have taught children living in poverty for 25 years have taken this class and been amazed at what they have learned the patterns that occur among many people who struggle financially.

Dorica Watson of Circles of Delaware County will be the trainer. Dorica has national training experience and a wealth of knowledge about building relationships across socioeconomic lines.

You must register for the session five business days before so that the church may provide box lunches for attendees. Children 10 and over may also role play in this activity. (Watch for registration information in Sabbatical Notes.)
