Enables participants, called “investigators,” to examine their own experience of poverty as well as explore issues in the community that impact poverty − banking, housing, jobs, transportation − providing critical information the community can use to take action to end poverty.
Guides investigators through an assessment of their own resources and how to build those resources as part of their move to self-sufficiency.
