This training is designed for educators and community members who wish to build a deeper understanding of the needs of children and families affected by poverty. Poverty is not merely a financial situation, but also includes emotional, mental, spiritual, and physical aspects. We will examine the critical role that support systems, resources, relationships, and role models play as intervening factors.
