Bridges Out of Poverty is a unique and powerful tool designed specifically for social, health, and legal services professionals. Based in part on Dr. Ruby K.

In a highly readable format you'll find 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 you work with; 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 liklihood of moving from welfare to work. 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.

Review:

For years, I have been practicing pediatrics in neighborhood clinics which primarily serve low-income families. But it was not until I had my own aha! moment at a Bridges Out of Poverty Workshop, that I began to better understand poverty and what my patients were up against. So many missing pieces of the poverty puzzle came together in my mind. Besides adjusting some of my own practices when caring for families in poverty, now I am a much stronger advocate for change in our policies and procedures in delivering healthcare to those in poverty. --Jane Goleman, M.D.Associate Professor of Pediatrics, The Ohio State University College of Medicine, Nationwide Children's Hospital
