The Poverty Factor™
The Poverty Factor™ Training Curriculum
Whether we encounter it on a daily basis or choose to believe that it has no impact on our lives, poverty in our world is a part of our reality.
The Poverty Factor, created and facilitated by Re-Source Solution’s, Dr. Katrina Spigner and Senior Consultant, Kimberly Jowers, is an interactive experience that is designed to help individuals, leaders, organizations, institutions, and communities examine the experiences of people living in generational poverty, discover hidden personal biases and develop strategies for change. This training curriculum provides a deeper understanding of the challenges and needs of people in poverty and the know-how to partner with them to create successful outcomes that build healthy individuals and communities.
Poverty Factor Training Options:
One-Day Training (six hours) – This highly experiential and interactive session takes a deep-dive into the exploration and examination of mindsets associated with socio-economic class and the barriers and opportunities presented by each.

Half-Day Training (three hours) – This session is interactive and invites participants to explore and examine mindsets associated with socio-economic class and the barriers and opportunities presented by each.
