Intern Outings- United Against Poverty
By: Alexander Sylvia
In their new campus, United Against Poverty is fully equipped to fight the good fight against poverty in our community. Not only do they have a member share grocery program, which offers affordable groceries to those who can’t afford it in a traditional grocery store setting, they also have a four-week program called STEP where they teach people the skills they need to be employed. I found their STEP program really interesting because of how comprehensive it is. Not only does it teach people how to get a job, it teaches people how to keep said job. They also have a comprehensive health clinic to deal with any mental or physical health issues that may be preventing them from finding employment. Even with COVID, United Against Poverty is unwavering in their mission to help those below the poverty line.
