Join Network colleagues for “Poverty in the US and Implications of COVID-19 in Developing & Delivering Innovative Service Responses,” an update on the efforts of three NJHSA member agency teams which are eagerly attacking the challenges of developing a successful road map for their high impact and sustainable solutions to Jewish poverty.
The Intensive Incubation Program of the NJHSA Jewish Poverty Challenge, an initiative of the Network’s Center for Innovation & Research, is completing year one with three deserving agency teams who are eagerly attacking the challenges of developing a successful road map for their high impact and sustainable solutions to Jewish poverty.
Professor H. Luke Shaefer, the inaugural director of Poverty Solutions at University of Michigan, will begin by sharing his research on poverty and social welfare policy in the United States, which has been published in top peer-reviewed academic journals in the fields of public policy, social work, public health, health services research, and history.
After he fields questions we’ll dive into a facilitated conversation led by StartCo President Andre Fowlkes with representatives from the three winning NJHSA agencies/communities: JFS Columbus; JFS Detroit, JVS Human Services, Detroit, Yad Ezra; JFCS Philadelphia.
