 2014 Beyond Relief

C4 Conference 

Often, programs addressing poverty center around “betterment”- free food, free clothing, free utility or rent assistance. Yet could it be that we are actually enabling poverty and creating entitlement and dependency?

“Beyond relief” provided opportunities to listen, learn, share, vision, and collaborate for actions yielding long-term solutions for economic, educational, social, and/or spiritual poverty according to Christ’s relational model so all parties mutually give and receive as we work together for positive social change.
