With gratitude in our hearts, CoActive Connections is closing its doors on May 25, 2017.
We are so proud of the impact we have made and the relationships we have built. We are looking forward to seeing how our poverty training has made a difference in your work and personal lives carrying forward. We are so honored to have spent time with you to improve outcomes for people experiencing poverty.
Since we began our journey, we have:
- Educated 4,000 Oregonians (and a few Northern Californians).
- Traveled approximately 6,200 miles to provide training around our state.
- Worked with numerous organizations to create action plans to identify ways to improve their services, policies and interactions with people experiencing poverty. Check out some of the groups we have worked with here.
We are making some of our basic curricula available to the public so that poverty training can continue, even if CoActive Connections is closing. While we customized each and every training we facilitated, some of the basic activities and agendas are available for access, as well as handouts and resources. You can view the files and download them here. We will be adding additional handouts and resources to it as we wrap things up!
If you need to connect with us or follow up on anything, you can reach us for a little while longer at firstname.lastname@example.org. For those of you who are interested in doing some work around poverty education but need some additional guidance, our Executive Director, Melinda Gross, may be available to work with you privately. You can reach her at her personal email: email@example.com.
We continually embrace our vision that no one should be treated differently because of their economic status, and will continue to instill this in everything that we do moving forward. We hope that you will join us.
Melinda Gross, Executive Director
