ECCO's 3rd Annual Bridges Out of Poverty Community Workshop

Bridges Out of Poverty

Strategies for Professionals and Communities

A One-day Workshop designed to help you better understand the people you and your organzation serve

If your business, agency, or organization works with people from poverty, only a deeper understanding of their challenges—and strengths—will help you partner with them to create opportunities for success.

Bridges Out of Poverty represents a powerful tool for change. Based in part on Dr. Ruby Payne’s myth-shattering A Framework for Understanding Poverty, Bridges reaches out to the millions of service providers and businesses whose daily work connects them with the lives of people in poverty.

Bridges training contains case studies, detailed analysis, helpful charts and exercises, and specific solutions you and your organization can implement right now to:

  • Redesign programs to better serve people in poverty
  • Build skill sets for management to help guide employees
  • Upgrade training for front-line staff like receptionists, case workers, and managers
  • Improve treatment outcomes in health care and behavioral health care
  • Increase the likelihood of moving from welfare to work

The book Bridges Out of Poverty is used as a training manual in the seminars and includes chapters on relationship building, mentoring, redesigning programs, and community collaboration.


  • You'll also hear from local experts who will speak to the failed arithmetic of housing and wages here in the Low Country        
  • Learn about one of the most innovative and successful service projects in North Charleston and how they are working with their community to address the problem of safe and affordable housing. 
  • Network with other professionals and service providers to learn about best practices across the community.
  • Have the opportunity to get involved in ECCO's Bridges Out of Poverty Initiiative
