Possible Solutions to Post Covid Poverty. The host for this show is Mihaela Stoops. The guest is Virginia Frank.
This discussion is based on the 5th edition of ‘Bridges Out of Poverty’ by Ruby K Payne and others. The book explains the causes of poverty and teaches individuals, agencies, non-profits and for-profit companies what to do to reduce poverty. Money is not the answer–or at least not the only one–when an individual needs to know and navigate the hidden rules of the social class that he/she wants to move to. The current war in Ukraine, as well as the economic consequences of Covid, are pushing more people to living in poverty and we community members need to know how to help. We narrow the discussion to Hawaii’s challenges: the affordable housing crisis, the high cost of child care, and the limited means of mass transportation.
