You can provide all kinds of help to TEAMwork and families working to leave poverty.

Among those are these top 12 ideas:

  • Help a family trying to work their way out of poverty by providing gifts and a meal for Christmas.
  • Attend a Thursday night Big View meeting on the fourth Thursday and discuss a specific barrier that holds people in poverty.
  • Have your church, family, card club or service group serve a meal to the Circles community on a Thursday night.
  • Fix a dessert for 65 and bring it for the Thursday night gathering.
  • Fix a pot of soup (or other meal) for 65, and bring it for the Thursday night gathering.
  • Have a volunteer come to your church or group to facilitate a 30-minute poverty exercise called “Making Choice.”
  • Invite a TEAMwork representative to come to your group and share some startling facts about poverty and what will happen if we don’t address it.
  • Attend a free poverty simulation to role play a person in poverty and try to survive four “weeks” in poverty.
  • Attend an “Understanding People in Poverty” training of 2 hours, 5 hours or 10 hours.
  • Join the Guiding Coalition to be part of the leadership to manage and strengthen the work toward self-sufficiency that TEAMwork addresses.
  • Become a resource Ally who can use one skill to help several families –computer training, tutoring, household management, etc.
  • Complete your training requirements, become an Ally, and be matched as an intentional friend and accountability partner to someone who is journeying to self-sufficiency.
