Lift-Up of Routt County, the Department of Human Services and Routt County United Way will present a free community poverty framework training session from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Thursday, March 6, at the Colorado Mountain College auditorium in Steamboat Springs. Dr. Regina A. Lewis will facilitate the training.
The training provides insight into the behavior of the individual in poverty, human and social capital, the exploitation of the poor, and economic and political structures. The model encourages our community to examine these areas and take actions that remove the obstacles that impede individuals in poverty from moving to self-sufficiency.
Community stakeholders will learn the framework of poverty and how it affects the services to those living in poverty. Community engagement will expand beyond the typical human services agencies to include schools, banks, businesses/employers, government, community families, law enforcement, and others.
