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.
