Do you feel stuck? Hopeless? Have your dreams not materialized? Are you tired of surviving? Are you ready to start thriving? Interested in a change?
Getting Ahead will TRANSFORM your life!
You can envision and achieve a better future for yourself and your family. You can build resources for a better life.
What is Getting Ahead?
Getting Ahead is a community of people who will support and challenge you as you envision a better future. It begins with a 12-week work group that investigates:
- The impact poverty has had on you
- How to build your personal resources
- How to move through the stages of change
- Ways to open doors for work
- How to budget your money
- How to improve communication skills
You will create your own future story and set goals to make it a reality. You will be supported throughout the process by others transforming their futures with you AND by caring Allies who connect you to other resources in the community.
Getting Ahead meets every Thursday from 6-8pm at Gobin Church and includes a free meal and childcare.
What people say:
“I never thought about future goals. My mindset was to make it through the day. I grew up in poverty, and my parents grew up in poverty. … Now I have goals for myself and my family. This program has absolutely changed my outlook on life, and it has changed my children’s future.”
–Getting Ahead participant
“The thing that keeps people stuck in poverty is fear. Fear is paralyzing and isolating. But the relationships in Circles provide a safety net of emotional support so people are willing to try new approaches without the fear of failure.”
