Bridges Out of Poverty Workshop to be Held in Coatesville

Oct 19, 2023 | Coatesville, Event

To help build a clearer understanding of the root causes of poverty and develop community-based solutions to build economic opportunity, a “Bridges Out of Poverty” workshop will be held at Coatesville City Hall on Thursday, Oct. 26, at 2 p.m.

The program, a community conversation aimed at creating a shared language around poverty, will be held by the Chester County Bridges Coalition and State Sen. Carolyn Comitta.

“In order to effectively address some of our community’s most pressing issues, we must strive to fully understand what poverty means to Chester County residents,” Comitta said. “This workshop is bringing together people from all sectors of the community to better understand the economic challenges so many families face and to find solutions to help prevent and eliminate poverty.”

The Bridges Out of Poverty program is meant to challenge the collective understanding of poverty and change practices at the individual, institutional, and community levels by creating a deeper understanding of its causes and impacts.

The Chester County Bridges Coalition consists of three Chester County non-profits working to address basic needs insecurity and assist disadvantaged members of our community: Orion Communities, The Crime Victims Center of Chester County, and Kennett Area Community Service.

The program is limited to 30 participants and advanced registration is required to attend. Interested attendees can RSVP online at qrco.de/beOEKG. For the full, unedited article by MEDIANEWS GROUP visit Daily Local News. For more information on downtown events visit the 19320GO events page.
