An 18-week program that helps people climb out of poverty begins Tuesday in Longview. The class, “Getting Ahead in a Just Gettin’ By World,” is offered through the city’s Partners in Prevention program. According to program manager Holly Fuller, it doesn’t take a cookie cutter approach to life changes.
“It’s more about really evaluating one’s life, circumstances, situations and resources, and then developing a plan as to how that person might want it to look in the future. It's about building a future story," Fuller said.
