The Poverty Challenge Kingston Newsletter

In 2021, the SPCK sponsored the Poverty Challenge. The Poverty Challenge is an experiential event to educate individuals on the challenges of living in urban poverty. Check out the Newsletter for the Challenge Toolkits, free online resources which will guide groups as they replicate two kinds of events.


"We hope other communities or agencies will look into this client-focused approach, and recognize the potential of wraparound programming to help individuals move forward in life, and address many of the challenges caused by their poverty." - The Poverty Challenge
