This conference offers best practices in public, private, and social sectors with sessions for education, workplace, congregations, healthcare, policy-making, community, criminal justice and first responders.

But when ALL stakeholders people in poverty, communities, businesses, organizations–come to the table with a coherent plan of action, amazing things happen.

It is a collection of articles published by Philip DeVol, co-author of Bridges Out Of Poverty and a leading voice in helping people come together to end poverty.
