Breaking the Cycle of Generational Poverty in Atlanta

 

St. Luke's Episcopal Church in partnership with the Atlanta Women's Foundation presented Breaking The Generational Cycle of Poverty for Women and Girls in Atlanta, a special event for members of the faith community working with women in poverty, on May 7.

The foundation has recently completed a research study that highlights the foundational issues that impact women and girls experiencing generational poverty in metro Atlanta.  The foundation undertook this  project to learn more about how women and girls experience poverty in our five-county service area. The results of this research have deepened AWF’s understanding of the issues impacting women and girls in our community. That information will be used to direct future activities and to help nonprofit partners and the community work more effectively.
