Become a more powerful volunteer

To be most effective, it's crucial that volunteers working with urban organizations comprehend poverty. First Congregational Church of Hudson's (FCCH) Mission Board is hosting a free workshop. It will explore the causes, hidden rules and impact of poverty. This is not a program, but an approach to working with those in poverty. Training will be led by Adrienne Bradley, director of Bridges Summit County. Bridges is an initiative in Summit County that believes poverty can be eliminated if all economic classes come together to create relationships, build resources, improve outcomes and support people moving out of poverty. Anyone interested in attending this workshop is invited.

The workshop will be at FCCH, 47 Aurora St., Hudson on the following Tuesdays from 7 to 9 p.m.: Dec. 6, Jan. 17 and Feb. 21.

To register go to www.hudsonucc.org, navigating to the Grow and Serve tab, then Poverty Workshop where you will find a link to registration or contact Sue Wimer at swimer@hudsonucc.org.
