Community Poverty Training Opportunities
Building a Brighter Future Today Class
HMFC provides this unique class through a grant supported by the Episcopal Diocese of Wyoming Foundation and Christ Episcopal Church. The course is a 16-week commitment. Participants meet one time a week for 2 hours. Dinner is included.
Two classes are held yearly, one in Cody and another in Powell. The Cody class usually starts in January, and the Powell class begins in late August. The course is limited to fifteen people, so once registration is opened, the class selection is on a first-come, first-serve basis.
People attending the classes are paid for their time, and the information they provide will be utilized to determine possible future policy changes to help our neighbors in Park County. Participants share and learn about the following:
-The resources available in Northwest Wyoming
-The issues and impact of living in poverty
-The conditions that strengthen and the barriers that challenge people living in poverty
-Proposed solutions for identified barriers
-If you or someone you know is interested in participating in the next class, please visit http://www.hmvmc.net/build-a-brighter-future.html
Park County Poverty Simulations
In 2016, Park County received a grant from the Episcopal Diocese of Wyoming Foundation and Christ Episcopal Church to implement Poverty Simulations in Park County. The Poverty Simulation is a unique, enlightening experience that helps individuals understand what life is like with a shortage of money and an abundance of stress. It moves people to think about the harsh realities of poverty and to talk about how communities can address the problem collectively.
A Simulation is a 4-hour event. Park County typically schedules two events a year. Click on the image to view the video to learn more about the Poverty Simulation.
