“It’s a challenge navigating the complex day for a single mother, or anyone in poverty.”
Vanessa Freytag, executive director of The Women’s Fund
Matthew Woolley’s featured article graces the page of Soapbox this week. Woolley examines
some of the systemic barriers facing individuals in poverty, along with some of the fallacies
associated with the topic. Below is a quick synopsis of the article and ways that CityLink has
responded to this issue in Cincinnati.
The cycle of poverty is only perpetuated by misconceptions. An adequately informed public
will transform communities across Cincinnati, breaking down socio-economic barriers and
crossing relational divides. CityLink Center fosters open and honest dialogue through one-on-one
relationships in an inclusive, productive environment.
Just as individuals are unique and complex, so are the stories they carry with them. Through
comprehensive and integrated programming, CityLink connects a wide range of resources and
support systems to meet the needs of individuals who are working their way out of poverty.
CityLink not only believes that everyone experiences some sort of poverty (be-it financial,
emotional, spiritual, etc.) but that everyone has value. It is our shared and collective experiences
that help us relate to one another and work effectively together.
