Bridge Out of Poverty Workshop in Odessa

Two non profits in Odessa hope to address the root causes of poverty.
Odessa, TX (Local Big 2 News) - Two non profits partnered together to provide the Bridges Out of Poverty workshop in Odessa.

Odessa Links, lead agency for the Odessa Homeless Coalition, along with First 5 Permian Basin, an organization that helps new mothers and fathers improve parenting skills, partnered together to provide the workshop at the UTPB Multipurpose Room July 10-11.

Organizers say the workshop was an opportunity for local agencies, teachers, service providers, business owners and anyone whose work connects them with those in poverty.

At the workshop, service providers addressed the root causes of poverty, and how to help their clients overcome obstacles.

If you're interested in helping Odessa Links with the HOPE Project, the non profit is organizing HOPEFest, August 9 at the Ector County Coliseum, with performances by Alyssa Bagley and Lonestar.
