Can Fresno Win the War on Poverty?
When: October 13th 7:00pm to 9:00pm
Where: Frank’s Place 1432 Fulton Street
Zócalo/The California Wellness Foundation Present: Can Fresno Win the War on Poverty?
“The war on poverty has been raging for a half century, but it can be hard to see much progress in Fresno. The city’s homeless and poverty rates rank among the nation’s worst, and various studies cite dismal statistics when it comes to unemployment, rising inequality, and a “brain drain” that’s resulted in a dearth of educated young professionals. But there is good news, too: The city has committed to ending chronic homelessness this year. Innovative social programs are experimenting with new models for how to get people off welfare and public assistance. Nonprofits are embarking on creative collaborations to address big problems together. And a number of entrepreneurs are betting on Fresno as the site of California’s next tech hub. What policies, programs, and investments have succeeded in combating poverty in Fresno—and how can they be replicated? Can the city truly eradicate poverty?”

I love where I live, and I also love what I do. I'm lucky to be able to work in a profession in which I get to build relationships; one that has me meeting new people each and every day and helping them to build new lives in my beloved city. I'm lucky enough to work in a profession in which I can marry cutting-edge technologies and marketing techniques to good, old-fashioned, nose-to-the-grindstone work. I am lucky enough to work in a profession that allows me to work as an advocate for my clients; to use every tool at my disposal to get a job done well for them, and with as little stress and expense as possible.
I love my city. I love my job. One inspires my excellence for the other.
Fresno? I say FresYES
