The Future Story Project

THE STORY:

The Future Story Project includes two programs: Bridges Out of Poverty and Getting Ahead in a Just-Gettin'-By World. Bridges Out of Poverty teaches people from generational middle class or wealth the "hidden rules" that govern different aspects of our lives in order to understand the challenges of poverty, build partnerships with those living in poverty, and create opportunities for success. Getting Ahead in a Just-Gettin'-By World classes, a step-by-step process for people who live in poverty, gives individuals the opportunity to investigate their lives on their own terms. During sixteen 2-hour long sessions, Getting Ahead participants, known as Investigators, discover why they are in their situation, develop a plan to get themselves to a more stable life, and begin to build relationships that will help ensure sustainability as they go.

We want to raise money for several aspects of the Future Story Project: transportation costs for Getting Ahead Investigators (not all of them have a car); childcare costs so their children are cared for while the Investigators are in class; supplies for each Investigator for the duration of the class; and additional supplies for Getting Ahead graduates that will help them when taking the next steps towards improving their situations.

We greatly appreciate any support that can be given; this is a program that really works to improve communities as a whole, and we are really excited to do our part to support the community of Knoxville!
