Interfaith Community Services hosts Getting Ahead Workshops. This program, funded by the Pima County “Ending Poverty Now” initiative, helps ensure people are not just getting by, but are instead “getting ahead” with an intensive 16-week course designed for people in or near poverty.
The free workshops offer a supportive environment to explore solutions and build resources to help participants become more financially stable. Participants examine their own experience of poverty as well as explore issues in the community that impact poverty − banking, housing, jobs, transportation − providing critical information the community can use to take action to end poverty.
Applications are closed for the current cohort of Getting Ahead workshops.
