HopeWorks of Howard County is hosting a Getting Ahead Group that will meet every Thursday between March 2, 2017 and April 20, 2017, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.
Orientation will be held on February 23, 2017, from 10 a.m. until noon
Getting Ahead Groups in Howard County are an outgrowth of the Bridges Out of Poverty initiative of the Board to Promote Self-Sufficiency. The initiative is a two part model that can change the culture of poverty in a community. Bridges Out of Poverty provides a framework for service providers to examine how they view and treat those in poverty, while Getting Ahead groups enable people in poverty to investigate the effects of poverty on their personal resources and what it takes to improve those resources.
