Churches, agencies and government are all working hard to assist people in need.

Generous individuals in our communities donate time and money to provide help for the poor.

The charity that is provided does not help the family or individual break the cycle of poverty.

A systemic approach is needed and St. Katherine Drexel Church in Sugar Grove is hosting a workshop to initiate a more systemic approach to "Understanding Poverty."

On the 50th anniversary of the start of the War on Poverty, all individuals, agencies, ministries, volunteers, churches and elected officials are invited to attended this powerful workshop.

Before we can advocate effectively for the poor or work effectively with the poor we must change our vision of what poverty is and what are the causes.

If you want to learn more about how to eliminate poverty in this community one person, one family, one block at a time, you will want to attend this workshop from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday, May 17, at St. Katharine Drexel Church in Sugar Grove.

To register, call the church to sign up for the "Understanding Poverty" workshop at (630) 466-0303, or contact
