We have been teaching Bridges Out of Poverty for five yearsthis includes many organizations and over three thousand individualsand the feedback is overwhelmingly positive.  Participants leave with a fresh perspective and a series of concepts that they can readily implement in their daily work.  After training the "front-line" is now equipped to build stronger relationships with the families they serve and improve the success of their programs by taking small steps. One participant's plan had been incredibly straightforward and doesn't cost a penny: "Develop relationships before approaching with paperwork/forms." 

That's the thing that makes Bridges such a powerful programthe resulting "next steps" are simple and actionable, but have the potential to revolutionize your program's outcomes and success. Nonprofit Network is able to customize this program to meet the needs of any organization, ranging from country hospitals to city police departments to grassroots programs and organizations. Here is just a glimpse of the organizations we've trained in Bridges Out of Poverty in the past years: 

  • Jackson Community Foundation
  • Henry Ford Allegiance Health
  • Center for Family Health
  • SouthCentral Michigan Works
  • Compassionate Ministries
