Learn more about poverty in our community and how we can work together to create a better place for our neighbors to live, work and play!
Christina Fulsom, Founder and CEO of the East Texas Human Needs Network will discuss the complexity of poverty and the promising impact of collective action in the areas of education, employment, health, housing, and transportation.
The goal is to invite the community to establish a Network where diverse individuals and organizations work toward strengthening programs, establishing connections, and improving awareness of services that meet essential human needs.
Mrs. Fulsom shared that “ETHNN builds on community strengths – together we assess the challenges that impact our community; we develop and work toward shared goals; we work to understand the complexities of poverty and to ensure that people know where to turn in times of need.”
