Advocacy & Education

Advocacy & Education

Tri County Community Action isn't just another non-profit.

We have a responsiblity to advocate for persons with low-incomes living in our community, and we take that role seriously. We know that unless you have faced and overcome the challenges faced by our low-income neighbors, you may not fully understand them.

To help raise understanding and awareness, we provide a variety of educational activities...because together, we know that we can achieve our mission of ending poverty in our region!


BRIDGES OUT OF POVERTY

This workshop is designed for employers, community organizations, law enforcement, counselors, health care/social service providers and members of the community. We will help you, your team or co-workers, and the collective group understand how to better serve persons with low-incomes - and will provide a powerful look at societal, political, individual and institutional systems we must address in building bridges out of poverty.


POVERTY SIMULATION

This immersive live action role playing simulation allows groups to experience what many people in poverty struggle with. As a group you’ll be faced with daily decisions ranging from how to get the kids to school on time, find or maintain employment, visit the assistance office or church, pay your bills, and keep a roof over your head...all in the span of a few hours.
