Coming October 2018
Flourish is designed to serve female heads of households (Leaders) who are un/underemployed and living in poverty. It is a high-impact poverty reduction model, based on Circles USA, that focuses on building three types of social capital:
Linking to community resources
Bonding with peers
Bridging to people of different income levels and cultural backgrounds
Flourish provides coaching for goal-setting and support and resources to foster long-term success. We understand that “success” is not limited to financial stability. Our definition of success includes financial stability along with increases in personal resourcefulness, adaptability, optimism, confidence, self-esteem, and mindfulness.
Meetings will be held Monday nights from 5:45 - 8:15 pm.
We believe that resolution of poverty requires:
compassionate emotional support
positive role models and mentoring
creative problem solving
effective decision-making strategies
committed institutional support
