Solving poverty in your local community

Rebecca fights poverty. She has walked with dozens of families as they made it completely out of poverty. Rebecca sees poverty as the main driver for most social problems. So let’s get people out of poverty! She works with kids, parents, educators and communities to do just that! Trauma-informed and restorative justice principles are the tool belt. Changed mindsets become the toolbox and relationships are the playground for taking this age old dilemma and turning it into a winnable game.
