SHERIDAN — The Center for a Vital Community and the YMCA will present another “Bridges Out of Poverty” training on April 26 from 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. at the Sheridan County YMCA.

Dr. Regina Lewis will present strategies for communities and professionals to help inspire innovative solutions for those looking to counter poverty and its impact at all levels in the community.
The “bridges” approach helps employers, schools, community organizations, social service agencies, hospitals, individuals and other community members address poverty in a comprehensive way.

People from all economic classes come together to increase job retention rates, build resources, improve outcomes and support those who are moving out of poverty.

Everyone is invited to attend this training, which provides a powerful model for economic and social change, sustainability and stability.

The cost is $25 per person and includes a book and lunch.

Pre-registration by April 23 is requested.
