Just-Gettin'-By World

Getting Ahead in a Just-Gettin'-By World is a step-by-step process for people who live in poverty, giving individuals the opportunity to investigate their lives on their own terms. 


During sixteen 2-hour 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.
