In our recent 10-session group workshop, 11 “co-investigators” of economic poverty experienced a transformative journey, creating stability and building essential resources to enhance their lives. The Getting Ahead in a Just Getting by World program successfully guided the group through self-assessment, empowering them with tools and skills for greater self-sufficiency. Together they forged healthier relationships, set goals, and created strategies to achieve them. 

Graduation – December 2023
