Bridges to Sustainable Communities- A systemwide, cradle-to-grave approach to ending poverty in America :
This collection of highly readable papers published by ”Phillip E DeVol”, co-author of Bridges Out of Poverty demonstrates new ways to talk about poverty, prosperity and community sustainability. The systemic approaches, techniques and community-based models create a practical model that you can use to bring about change in your community. Take up the challenge to pass on a higher quality of life to the next generation! Most anti-poverty programs lack a system-wide scope of effort. But when ALL stakeholders – people in poverty, communities, businesses, organizations – come to the table with a coherent plan of action, amazing things happen as evidenced in these articles. This book is embraced by systems thinkers, legislators, and policy makers as its articles quickly capture the high points from Bridges Out of Poverty, Getting Ahead in a Just-Gettin’-By World, How to Start a Bridges Community, and others. The revised edition includes the “12 Thinking Tools for Bridges”, a new and very helpful tool for Bridges Communities
