Bridges Out of Poverty

Posted by: Communications Manager on Wednesday, March 1, 2017 at 12:00:00 am

Leadership Lawton Fort Sill Class XXVI has chosen to support the Getting Ahead in a Just Gettin’ By World program that is presented by The Salvation Army. This program takes individuals in poverty through a journey that builds their resources for a more prosperous life for themselves, their families, and their communities. Getting Ahead in a Just Getting’ By World is a hand-up based program and not a handout, however, they provide those attending with weekly stipends, meals, childcare, class material and knowledge to empower and invest. All this takes place through a 20 week, 45-hour workshop experience. As we all know, poverty is an ongoing issue, Leadership Lawton Fort Sill Class XXVII has made it a priority to be part of the solution to ending poverty.
