Poverty: Living with “Less Than Enough” 3 CEU's Pending 

Area Agency on Aging Educational Webinar - 3 CEU's Pending


Recall personal experiences of living with "enough," "more than enough," or "less than enough." Emotions associated may include: shame, guilt, fear, powerlessness, rage, determination. Consider official definitions of wealth, middle class status, working class poverty or street survival. How do JFS clients meet steep expenses in your county? Let us avoid: "the violence of looking away."


  • Describe diverse personal experiences of economic well-being
  • Compare and contrast official definitions of economic status
  • Examine barriers to open communication about economic status
  • Develop an action-plan, whether grand or small to confront poverty in your community
