Meet And Greet

SJC Bridges Out of Poverty has been invested in the South Bend community for 10+ years. Since our formation, we have expanded our scope beyond South Bend to encompass the whole Michiana region. As a Bridges Out of Poverty Initiative, we have become leaders not only in our local community, but on the national platform as well. Though there have been some changes over time,one thing has not changed: we have continuously fought for economic justice.

This coming Thursday, July 21st, we invite you to join us at the Center For History for a Meet and Greet with our new Executive Director, LeRoy C. King III, from 5pm - 7pm.

At the Meet and Greet we will share with the community our future plan for the direction of our organization and open discussion for how everyone can join in the initiative to create a more sustainable South Bend, St. Joseph County, and beyond. We will also feature one of our past events, Legacy, in which women came together to write about their life legacies. We hope that the stories of these women involved in putting together the anthology will touch you as much as it has touched us.

If interested in attending the event, please RSVP at this link:

We hope that you will also join us in the mission to eliminate generational and situational poverty!
