In the East Texas community of Tyler, Bridges Out Of Poverty and other local organizations are organizing a number of poverty awareness events in the coming weeks. A Cost of Poverty workshop including the class “Getting Ahead In a Just Getting By World” and other classes will take place on December 12th at Green Acres Baptist Church. The program is still accepting student and facilitator applicants. Also, another event will educate community members about homelessness, with a meal at the Salvation Army, a discussion with the homeless, a candlelight vigil, and an optional night sleeping in Bergfeld Park.
