Bridges Out of Poverty closes the gap Posted: September 20, 2017

OLHSA recently hosted a Bridges Out of Poverty (BOP) workshop in Howell for over 50 guests, including educators, librarians, business people, first responders, media and elected officials. The goal was to develop a cohesive approach to poverty education and services in our community. 

The workshop provided tangible ways that these influential people can bridge the gap between economic classes and support those who are moving out of poverty. It was supported by the Livingston County Homeless Continuum of Care Committee and is funded by Livingston County United Way.

BOP works in coordination with Getting Ahead in a Getting By World, which is a 12-16 week learning experience for those who are in poverty.
