About Bridges out of Poverty®

Bridges out of Poverty® is a training initiative with the broad goal of increasing awareness about poverty and inspiring compassion and a commitment to poverty reduction. Bridges out of Poverty® is built on the idea that everyone in a community has a role to play in poverty reduction. Participants are invited to look at poverty differently through these interactive workshops. Workshops are available to anyone interested in learning more about the social and economic impacts that poverty has on individuals in our community.

Bridges out of Poverty® workshops will help participants understand:

  •  the causes and impacts of poverty on families
  •  the hidden rules of economic groups
  •  the importance of building relationships

Workshops are currently being offered by trained facilitators from the Sudbury & District Health Unit, Our Children, Our Future, and Centre de santé communautaire du Grand Sudbury.

Workshops are offered in 3-hour introductory and 6-hour in-depth sessions.
