Schedule at a Glance (3 pages)


We are over poverty! Everyday our agencies work to end the effects poverty has on families and communities across North Carolina.  As we work to get people and families “over poverty” and move towards self-sufficiency we want to provide new insights into tackling the issue. All levels of community action and nonprofit staff whether newcomer or seasoned professionals will obtain strategies, tools, skills and best-practices to help families build new possibilities. Plenary sessions, workshops, and networking opportunities will foster collaboration and focus attention on the diverse faces of poverty in North Carolina while promoting positive change in our communities.
