Our current Bridges Out of Poverty participants have agreed to share some pieces they wrote about their lives before and during the Bridges Out of Poverty classes. We’re sharing them with in a series of posts. We’ve put the originals below as images, and typed them out (as close to verbatim as possible) below that.
I came into Bridges shy scared and broke. And Bridges really helping me by given me courage of strength and power and helps me in getting to know people and resources to help me build my strength and courage and brought me out of being shy. I have learned how to talk and work with people on the same income or less. And I’m learning how to save money.
