County Coalition Brings ‘Bridges out of Poverty’ Workshop to Anadarko

Anadarko, OK – The Caddo County Interagency Coalition is hosting a free training on dealing with poverty in Anadarko at the Wichita Iscani Gym on Monday, August 28th, 2017 from 9:00 a.m. – 4:30 p.m. Bridges Out of Poverty is a unique and powerful tool designed specifically for social, health, legal and law enforcement professionals. The training will include case studies, detailed analysis, helpful charts and exercises, and specific solutions you and your organization can implement.

If you didn’t grow up in poverty, you may be unaware of the “hidden rules” that govern many aspects of life for the poor. People in poverty are often in survival mode, where the future holds no promise, and support systems taken for granted in middle class and wealth are nonexistent. If your business, agency, or organization works with people from poverty, only a deeper understanding of their challenges—and strengths—will help you partner with them to create opportunities for success.

We are excited for people to attend and there are also CEU’s for Social Workers and 6 hours of CLEET credit for Law Enforcement,” said Rebecca Villa-Winsett, Chair of the Caddo County Interagency Coalition. “Bringing this training to Southwest Oklahoma has been over a year in planning.”

This workshop is being put on through a collaboration of the CCIC and it is sponsored by the Oklahoma Department for Human Services, Wichita Tribe’s RISE Program, and the University of Oklahoma Center for Public Management. It will be facilitated by The Salvation Army Arkansas-Oklahoma Division’s Bridge The Gap Oklahoma. This training is being offered for free and you can register to attend online by using this link: https://events.oucpm.org/povertyworkshop/events/anadarko-ok/
