Alleviating Poverty in Detroit and Beyond: A Look at Interventions
Although there are many programs and policies aimed at alleviating poverty, too often there are gaps between people’s needs and programs’ offers. This workshop explores U-M Poverty Solution’s work on The Detroit Housing Guide, the Flint Provider Empowerment Program and other interventions designed to fill in these gaps. Kelly Christopherson is completing her MPP at the Ford School at the University of Michigan focusing on public policy analysis methods. She has worked with Poverty Solutions since December of 2019 engaging the Flint Provider Empowerment Program and the Detroit Partnership on Economic Mobility. Trevor Bechtel joined Poverty Solutions in 2018 after a twenty-year career teaching ethics and religion throughout the Great Lakes Region. He manages all aspects of student engagement for Poverty Solutions.  Poverty Solutions is a University of Michigan initiative that aims to prevent and alleviate poverty through action-based research.   https://poverty.umich.edu/
