We never know the path others are traveling

It saddens my heart that so many are sick and so many are dying. May we at this time pause and have a moment of silence for those that we have lost. They are our family members, friends

r By Carol BarkerrOn Wednesday, March 20, from 9:30 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. Community Action Services and Food Bank will be holding its second kNOw Poverty Summit and Simulation.

It will be held at the Provo Library in the Grand Ballroom, 550 N University Ave, Provo. Parking is free in the underground parking lot accessible on the east side of the building.

The Poverty Simulation is a hands-on mini-view of the barriers low-income individuals and families face on a daily basis A simple role play will demonstrate some of the frustrations low-income families have to deal with as they “jump through the hoops” of compliance.

The purpose of the kNOw Poverty Summit/discussion panel is to promote more awareness of the poverty concerns in our community and understand what resources are available – who the key people are and how to access them. By increasing our understanding of the low-income population and the barriers they face in getting out of poverty, we hope to inspire local awareness to assist in giving them the tools needed to effect a permanent change in their life.

The Bridges Out of Poverty workshop is a short version of re-thinking our views on what poverty is; what the causes are; and what life can be like for those in poverty.
