Whether you represent a community, school, healthcare facility, legal system, employer program or other entity, Getting Ahead represents the cutting edge of knowledge, techniques, and support – and the very best chance to help struggling families achieve a better quality of life.
Let’s face it: poverty is getting worse. More and more people are slipping into situational poverty due to loss of employment, low wages, health issues or other circumstances. Communities, agencies and entities around the country – and world – are taking action to help people escape ‘the tyranny of the moment’ and take control of their lives. This guide helps you help them do just that.
- facilitates learning based on co-investigations by individuals and facilitators
- relies as much on discussion as on program content
- sets a concrete definition of poverty as ‘the extent to which an individual does without resources’
- supports individuals in stabilising their situations and building resources and human capital
- addresses all four causes of poverty – individual behaviours and circumstances, community conditions, exploitation and political/economic structures
- employs self-assessment of resources and a personal ‘My life now’ mental model to help conceptualise the difference between what life is like now and what life could be.
